Enfield Council says ‘Make the Switch’

Published Friday, 30 May 2014

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

Big energy switch

Enfield Council is joining 17 other London boroughs this summer to support London Councils deliver the next phase of the Big London Energy Switch. The scheme covers around 1.8 million households in London, of which it is estimated that 360,000 are in fuel poverty and aims to reduce bills for vulnerable residents.

Since April 2013, there have been four previous collective energy switching auctions which have seen over 48,000 residents register for the Big London Energy Switch, joining a total of 286,000 residents nationwide. London residents who switched energy suppliers saved an average of £120 on their energy bills.

Enfield resident David Watson saved £90 in April 2013. 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 “Enfield Council is actively trying to make its residents better off by helping them obtain cheaper gas and electricity. In these days when every penny counts I would urge as many people as possible to sign up and save on their energy bills.

“It’s quick and easy and you could be quids in.”

To find out more or to register, go to Energyswitch residents have until midnight on Monday 9 June 2014 to sign up.

The energy auction will take place on Tuesday 10 June and offers are expected from Friday 20 June.
