Dudley's Big Switch

Get signed up to Dudley’s Big Switch to save cash on your home energy bills

What is Dudley's Big Switch?

With gas and electricity prices more than doubling in less than seven years and with this trend set to continue, borough residents are urged to sign up to Dudley’s Big Switch to save money on their gas and electricity bills.

Dudley’s Big Switch is a collective energy switching scheme, which is designed to bring people together to reduce their energy bills by switching suppliers collectively.

It’s part of a national initiative where councils across the country go to auction to see which energy company will offer the best tariff for their residents.  Thousands of people across the country have already saved money by joining collective energy switching schemes.  At previous Big Switch auctions Dudley borough residents have saved up to £300 each per year on their energy bills.

It’s important to remember that the more people that register on the scheme, the better the deal offered by the energy providers.

The scheme is run by Dudley Council; a company called IChoosr will act as an intermediary between the council and energy suppliers

Who can register with the scheme?

The scheme is open to all householders living in Dudley Borough, including people living in rented accommodation, people with a prepayment meter, people paying for dual fuel, as well as people paying for gas and electricity separately and people with a fuel debt of up to £500 or less.

When is the next Big Switch and how can I register?

There are three Big Switch auctions each year. The next Big Switch will launch in autumn 2018. Look out for details launching late summer.

What will happen once I register?

After the auction closes you will receive a personal offer from us (within a six week period) and will be able to see how much money you will be able to save by switching to the chosen energy supplier. You can then choose whether or not to accept this no obligation offer.

Please note that if you do decide to switch you are entering into a contract with an energy supplier, not with Dudley Council. The responsibility to provide energy and deliver your contract lies with the energy supplier.
