Join the Big Community Switch and take control of your energy bills this winter!
Registration is now open for the Big Community Switch - and residents of the Borough are being urged to sign up to fix their energy tariff!
The Big Community Switch is a safe and simple option for our residents to try and save money on their fuel bills this winter.
Switching means you can fix your tariff and you no longer have to waste precious time comparing prices as it's all done for you! It's free to do and there is no obligation to switch.
Stockton-on-Tees Borough residents have until Monday 2 October 2023 to register for the next online auction on Tuesday 3 October, when a variety of energy companies will compete to become the energy supplier for customers that sign up for the switch.
The more customers signed up and registered the more competitive the deal is likely to be.
Once registered, you will receive your personal offer highlighting how much you might save compared to your current energy tariff. If you choose to accept this no obligation offer you will need to follow the online instructions to make the switch.
Councillor Clare Gamble, the Council's Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, said: "We understand that many households are frustrated with the high energy costs and have struggled over the last 18 months. That's why we're committed to seeking better deals working in partnership with Big Community Switch and iChoosr.
"But we also understand that switching energy suppliers can be a daunting task, and that's why we're here to help and to guide you through the process.
"Don't wait any longer to see if you can start saving on your energy bills. Join the Big Community Switch today and take control of your energy costs."
You can take part if you rent your home, but you must have an energy bill in your or your partner's name. If you have a prepayment/key card meter you can also register, but you must not be more than £500 in debt to your current fuel supplier to switch.
If you, or someone you know, can't access the form you can still register by calling the
Big Community Switch registration line on 0800 048 8439. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 8am to 5:30pm, please have a recent energy bill to hand.
Or for further help switching call Stockton District Advice and Information Service on 01642 633877.
