Helping you cut your energy bills
Interested in switching suppliers to save money on your energy bill?
Residents across Suffolk Coastal and Waveney could save money on their energy bills by linking up with their district council to join the UK’s largest collective energy switching scheme.
The simple scheme encourages householders to join up with others across the country to negotiate cheaper energy bills. Registration is easy and there is no obligation to actually sign up to any deal.
The scheme works by means of a reverse auction where energy suppliers will be invited to bid the lowest price to supply the energy to all those signed up for the scheme. Residents will then be sent a no-obligation offer to switch provider and accept their new energy rates.
iChoosr is providing support to all participating councils for this collective switching scheme. iChoosr has years of experience in terms of saving money through collective switching. Over 450,000 participants have already switched suppliers thanks to iChoosr's collective switching schemes in three different countries.
The scheme is also the first in the UK to allow residents who use pre-payment meters to register.
Registration for the next auction opened on 2 December 2014 and you can sign-up up to and including 2 February 2015. Registration for is open to all domestic customers.
When you sign-up you will be asked for the name of your current energy supplier(s) and current tariff plan(s), your current consumption in kWh or spend - you will find these details of your energy suppliers bill or your annual statement.
The energy supplier with the best deal will be determined during an auction on 3 February 2015. If you sign-up you will receive an email from 13 February 2015 with an offer, based on your usage and the best deal from the auction. You will have until 16 March 2015 to decide and let iChoosr know whether you want to accept the offer. iChoosr provide support and guidance throughout the registration and switching process.
