Enfield Council says ‘Cash in by making the switch’

Published Monday, 03 February 2014

Residents in Enfield have another chance to find cheaper deals on gas and electricity through collective energy switching, a scheme that helps residents club together to secure lower energy prices by using a third party ‘switching provider’.

Enfield Council is joining 22 other London boroughs to support London Councils deliver the next phase of the ‘Big London Energy Switch’ in February.

In April 2013, 26,000 residents registered for the first phase of the ‘Big London Energy Switch,’ joining a total of 160,000 residents nationwide. London residents who switched energy suppliers saved an average of £122 on their energy bills.

David Watson from Enfield saved £90 in April. David said “The Big London Energy Switch made it so easy for us to switch supplier and save money.”

Cllr Chris Bond, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment said “Energy prices are on the rise, and at a time when it is important to get the best deal on fuel prices I would urge everyone to look into this scheme which will help make your money go further with energy companies.

“Get ready for the next cold snap and register by 17 February to make the big switch, and save cash”.

Residents have until midnight on Monday 17 February 2014 to register by going to Switch

Information will then be sent to everyone who has registered and offers are expected from 28 February.
There is no obligation to accept the offer to switch energy supplier and savings are not always guaranteed – this will depend on how much energy you use and your current tariff.
