Power to the people: sign up for the Big London Energy Switch
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 has joined forces with 22 other London boroughs to support London Councils deliver the next phase of the 'Big London Energy Switch' during November.
In April, 26,000 residents registered for the first phase of the 'Big London Energy Switch,' . It is reported that London residents who switched energy suppliers saved an average of £122 on their energy bills.
Cllr Chris Bond, Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment said "Energy prices are on the rise, and at a time when every penny counts I would urge everyone to look into this scheme which will help make your money go further with energy companies. "Don't get caught out by huge winter bills and register by 18th November to make the big switch, and save cash".
Residents have until midnight on Monday 18th November to register by going to Energy and Information will then be sent to everyone who has registered and offers are expected from 27th November. 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.
