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.
We have a website www.buckscc.gov.uk/switchedon where people can find out more and also register their interest.
The deadline for registration is 13rd February 2017 and the auction for suppliers will take place on 14th February. Please note that residents will need their existing energy bill(s) to complete your registration.
