Cash in with Big Energy Switch

Published Tuesday, 29 September 2015

Enfield Council is reminding residents that they 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 23 other London boroughs to support London Councils deliver the next phase of the ‘Big London Energy Switch’ this October.

Since April 2013, there have been eight previous ‘Big London Energy Switch’ auctions. These have helped over 8,000 London residents switch energy suppliers and save an average of approximately £190 on their energy bills.

Enfield residents have saved an average of about £210. Particular focus will again being given to deprived communities and vulnerable residents at a time of rising energy costs.

Cllr Alan Sitkin, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration and Business Development, 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.”

Residents have until midnight on Monday 12th October to register by going to Link

Information will then be sent to everyone who has registered and offers are expected from about 30th October.

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.

This is just one of many projects in the Enfield 2020 Action Plan. To find out more about Enfield 2020 and how this is part of something bigger, please visit: Link
