Essex Energy Switch

31 March 2017

The Essex Energy Switch is a collective switching initiative for people and who want to cut their energy bills.
The Essex Energy Switch will launch on Tuesday 4 April and residents  have until Tuesday 23rd May 2017 to register their interest (without any obligation) in switching their energy supplier through the scheme.
If you registered last year, you will still have to register for this round.
Essex residents saved nearly £2million combined from our past three energy switches. Rather than switching energy providers as an individual customer, let’s work together and save money.
If you haven’t switched for a few years you are likely to see the biggest savings, but even those who switch regularly can benefit. 
Residents in the last Essex Energy Switch saved an average of more than £319 per household and many saved even more.
It's a free, easy and secure way to cut your energy bill without wasting time comparing prices on comparison sites.

How do I register?

Please note that one email address can register up to five households which means you are able to register on behalf of friends or relatives who do not have internet access.

Is there a cost?

There's no cost to register and there is no cost to switch. 

Who is it for?

Anyone who pays an energy bill can take part. As well as homeowners this includes tenants and customers on pre-payment meters. 
You can register for electricity and gas or just for one or the other. The choice is yours.
Small and medium-sized businesses can also register through the bespoke business bureau service and we encourage them to do so. 

What can I do now?

If you follow the link at the top of this page you will be directed to our partners’ registration page. 

Not on a gas main?

If you're not connected to the mains gas supply it is still possible to save money on heating oil by joining the Rural Community Council of Essex (RCCE) community oil buying scheme.

The scheme brings communities together by using joint buying power savings can be passed on directly to people like you whose fuel costs may be high simply because you use oil fired central heating. It also saves you the time and hassle of telephoning numerous suppliers to obtain quotes for the best price every time you need fuel.
