A money saving scheme which helped people save on average £130 a year off their energy bills in 2018 is back!

The Wyre Forest Big Energy Switch, backed by Wyre Forest District Council, reopens on Tuesday 3 December 2019 and closes on Monday 10 February 2020.

The scheme uses collective bargaining power to get a better deal with a competitive process taking place to negotiate with energy companies. Those who have registered their interest will be given a personalised offer showing how much they could save by switching.

Registration is free and people only need their most recent energy bill to sign up with no obligation to switch.

Jenny Moreton, Wyre Forest District Council’s principal health and sustainability officer said: “I’m really excited we are backing the Wyre Forest Big Energy Switch again. It’s a great way to see if you could save money on your energy bills by switching supplier. Registration is free and most people get a good deal from energy suppliers.

“The more people who register the lower the tariff is likely to be for everyone involved, so we’re encouraging everyone to sign up and see what offer they receive.”

The amount of money that can be saved will vary depending on individual factors such as the current tariff, payment method, consumption and the winning bid. There is no guarantee that an offer will be the cheapest but the model aims to ensure the majority of participants are offered lower annual energy bills than they are currently paying or are available at the time of the offer.

Registration is at www.wyreforestdc.gov.uk/BigEnergySwitch.
