Essex Energy Switch

12 February 2019

The Essex Energy Switch is now open 

The Auction will take place on the 12th February 2019, however you can still register after this date and you will receive the offer immediately.   

If you registered last year, you will still have to register for this round.

What is the Essex Energy Switch? 

The Essex Energy Switch is a scheme where residents can sign up to receive cheaper energy tariffs. Many people are paying too much for their gas and electricity and haven’t changed suppliers in years, if at all. Join the Essex Energy Switch scheme today to see if you can secure a better energy deal for the year ahead.


Over £3.6 million has been saved by Essex collective switchers from our past 5 energy switches so far – money that homeowners can spend elsewhere. The 15,000 residents in past auctions have saved an average of more than £230 per household and many saved even more.

By joining a collective switch made up of thousands of like-minded people, we increase our purchasing power so we can negotiate a better deal from energy suppliers, who compete against each other at auction to offer the best tariffs.

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. 

It's a free, easy and secure way to cut your energy bill without wasting time on comparison sites.

How do I register?

Register for free and with no obligation.

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?

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.
