Join the Big Community Switch

Gloucestershire County Council wants to support people in their quest to get a better deal for their energy.

The council is concerned about the impact that energy prices have on Gloucestershire residents, particularly older people and those living in fuel poverty.  That's why it is participating in the Big Community Switch to help people get cheaper gas and electricity by working together.

The Big Community Switch is bulk buying - if a large number of people want to change supplier together they are likely to get a better deal than just one person shopping around and switching on their own.

The more households that register their interest in switching, the more attractive it becomes for an energy supplier to offer a competitive price and the more likely consumers are to achieve significant savings.

The closing date to register for the 'Winter' Big Community Switch is 1st February.  If you have registered for a previous auction you can still benefit from the auction offers.

You can  Register Online or by phoning the council on 01452 42 57 57 between 8.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday.  By doing this, you are under no obligation to switch supplier.

You can also call 01452 425757 - lines are open Monday to Friday, 8.30am - 5.00pm.

Registration closes on 1 February 2016.
