This December, Buckinghamshire County Council will again invite residents to see if they can make savings on their energy bills through the Government’s Collective Switching Scheme It is a national scheme, which will join our residents, families and friends with other people from around the country in a large pool and then invite energy suppliers to bid in an auction to provide energy to this pool of people at a preferential lower rate. Once the supplier has been confirmed they will write to everyone with a personalised quote. There is no obligation to switch. In the last round of Auction:
- 41% of people who registered in Buckinghamshire were able to make a saving
- The average savings in the county have been around £280 per year.
