Save money on energy bills with The Big Switch

Dudley residents looking to save cash in 2018 can make a start by saving money on their energy bills and taking part in Dudley Council’s energy saving Big Switch scheme.

The council run scheme has been going for several years and is growing in popularity as a result of the great savings that can be made on home gas and electricity bills. Energy bill savings of up to £300 a year are typically made when registering for the Big Switch and market leading deals are on offer, not available elsewhere.

With gas and electricity bills on the rise and research indicating that people are reluctant to switch because they find it too confusing, the Big Switch is the perfect solution. Part of a national government initiative, the Big Switch scheme sees councils coming together and taking part in a collective energy switching auction. By joining together they are able to get the very best energy deals through the power of bulk buying.

If you are on a standard variable tariff you will certainly be set to see big savings through the Big Switch. Suggestions are that the energy prices will continue to rise throughout this year, so it’s well worth getting the very best deal you can.

To register with Dudley’s Big Switch, visit the council’s website or call Dudley Council Plus on 0300 555 2345. You will be guided through the simple process and will need to have your current tariff details and fuel usage (shown on the your most recent bill) to hand.

This auction will run until 22 May and then people will have the option of switching energy supplier to the company offering the very best deal. There is however no obligation to do so, so there really is nothing to lose!

The Big Switch is open to all householders, including people living in rented accommodation, those with a prepayment meter and people with a fuel debt of up to £500 or less.
