North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, ENGIE, are once again teaming up with the Big Community Switch, a free scheme which could help you make savings on your home energy costs.

The popular home energy scheme benefits from the power of people. Through grouping together registered residents, the Big Community Switch holds a reverse auction where trusted energy suppliers bid for your custom, bidding against each other for the lowest offer, to drive the cost of your home energy bills down.

The process is quick, easy and obligation free, and could see you saving a wad of cash.

The latest round will launch on Tuesday 3 August and you have until Tuesday 12 October to sign up to the scheme.

You can register online at https://bigcommunityswitch.co.uk/north-east-lincolnshire/register.

Those who do not have access to the internet can contact the Home Energy Team to sign up. If you are calling the team, don’t forget to have a recent gas and electricity bill to hand.

Councillor Callum Procter, portfolio holder for economic growth, housing and tourism said: “The Big Community Switch allows us to use residents joint buying power to lower home energy costs.

“We have seen people save between £60 and £200 a year across the country on their energy bills and the more people that sign up, the bigger the potential savings.

“There is no need to compare tariff’s or worry about switching as this is all handled for you making the process quick, easy and worry free.

“If you want to see savings like this, then I encourage you to sign up to the scheme today.”
