Charnwood's "Big Switch" offers energy bills savings

Residents in Charnwood are being offered the chance to sign up to the 'Big Switch' with the possibility of saving more than £240 a year on energy bills.

The borough council has launched the Charnwood Big Switch, a collective switching scheme to help residents change energy suppliers with ease and get a better deal.

The scheme is delivered by the Council and iChoosr, an independent specialist provider in collective energy switching.

Collective switching gives people the opportunity to group together and pay less for their energy. Residents can switch electric or dual fuel and can choose to have paper bills or to manage their accounts online.

iChoosr hold three auctions a year and energy suppliers compete to provide the lowest priced tariff in the auction.

It is free for residents to register their interest and registrations for the first auction are now open. The first auction for Charnwood will take place on 8 October.
