Save Money On Energy Bills With The Big Switch

With the summer moving on quickly and autumn looming ever nearer Dudley Borough residents are being encouraged to think ahead and get saving on their energy bills.

Dudley Council is urging people to be proactive and to sign up to its latest Big Switch campaign.  At the last campaign in May this year the average saving was more than £300 per household, so it’s well worth getting registered.

The Big Switch brings people together to reduce their energy bills by switching their energy suppliers collectively.  The more people who register; the better the deal offered by the energy companies. The deals offered are market leading rates which are not available through ordinary switching sites.

In previous auctions more than 6000 people across Dudley have registered to switch with great savings on offer.

People can register online or by phone to take advantage of cut price rates offered by energy companies. The Big Switch auction opened again on 2 August and closes for registration on 10 October.

The scheme is open to all householders, including people living in rented accommodation, those with a prepayment meter or people paying for dual fuel or for gas and electricity separately and those with a fuel debt of up to £500 or less. Councillor Gaye Partridge, cabinet member for housing, said:

“Our Big Switch energy auctions have proved extremely popular in the last few years with thousands signing up to take part and savings hundreds of pounds on their energy bills.  Now is the ideal time to be registering to save ready for the coming colder winter months.”
