Sign up to Dudley’s Big Switch and save cash on your home energy bills.

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

What Is Dudley's Big Switch?

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

It is part of a national initiative where councils across the country work together to get the very best energy deals for their householders. Thousands of people across the country have already saved money by registering with the Big Switch. At previous Big Switch auctions Dudley borough residents have saved an average of up to £300 each per year on their energy bills.

How Does It Work?

The Big Switch involves four easy steps.

  • Sign up for free without obligation. It takes less than 5 minutes.
  • A 'auction' takes place. The supplier who offers the cheapest tariff will offer you a contract.
  • You will then receive a personal offer to see how much money you could save.
  • Finally, you get decide whether you accept the offer or not.

Please note, 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.

Who Can Register With The Scheme?

The scheme is open to all householders living in the Dudley Borough, and includes the following:

  • People living in rented accommodation.
  • People with a prepayment meter.
  • People paying for dual fuel.
  • People paying for gas and electricity separately.
  • 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 auction has now launched and closes at midnight on 21 May 2019.
