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

Colder weather is here! If you're concerned about how much your energy bills are costing you, why not take this fantastic opportunity to potentially save some money? Colchester's Big Community Switch, launching again this December, could help you do just that.

Key dates and information for the Big Community Switch:

· The next Big Community Switch round will be launched on 5th December  2017. You will have up until 12th February 2018 to complete your online registration form. Registration lines close and the energy auction takes place on 13th February 2018.

· iChoosr will send your switch offers out to you from 23rd February 2018. You will need to confirm that you would like to switch before 27th March 2018.

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.
