Fed up with high energy bills? Then join the Big Allerdale Switch
The Big Allerdale Switch is a free and easy way to save money on your energy bills and enjoy a warmer home, whether you are on dual-fuel, separate supplier contracts or a pre-payment meter.
By coming together as a group, you could get a better deal - and all the hard work is done for you.
All you need to do, is register here https://bigcommunityswitch.co.uk/allerdale/register or call us on 0303 123 1702 or visit an Allerdale Borough Council service centre with a recent energy bill or statement to hand.
Registration opened on August 13 and you are able to sign up now.
Since we began the scheme, residents who have used the Big Allerdale Switch have together saved more than £250,000.
Energy suppliers will be invited to bid against each other in an auction to find their best deal. You will then be told how much you could save if you choose to switch, although you are under no obligation to do so.
