The Big Community Switch

The Big Community Switch is back to save you money on your energy bills


As summer begins to turn to the longer nights and colder days of autumn we all start to think about how much we spend on our energy bills. Everyone welcomes the chance to save some money and Colchester's Big Community Switch, launching again this August, could help you do just that.

The Big Community Switch is back for the thirteenth time, with registrations open until 9 October. Colchester residents are encouraged to sign up online and, with the power of switching, make saving money on energy bills a real possibility.

With the scheme, switching is simple. All you need is an email address and a recent energy bill for each household you want to receive a switching offer for. Switching energy providers is one of the best ways to reduce the cost of your energy bills. During the scheme the average participating household has saved over £200 per year on the cost of gas and/or electricity bills. Visit to register and find out more.
