The Big London Energy Switch (BLES) scheme, run by the council’s partner iChoosr brings people together to use their collective buying power and secure better deals on fuel bills. The scheme takes the hassle out of searching for a cheaper fuel supplier, registering your interest is simple, and there is no obligation to switch.
The next auction will take place on Tuesday, 8 October where energy suppliers will compete against each other to offer people the cheapest tariffs available. Everyone who registers will be contacted with a personal offer and then can decide whether to switch or stay with their current energy supplier and tariff.
Registration is open now at https://biglondonenergyswitch.co.uk/ealing/register
Ealing residents can sign up until Monday, 7 October.
Helping residents save money
Ealing Council has supported residents to sign up to the BLES scheme since April 2013, residents who switched providers have achieved an average saving of £241 on their fuel bills.
Councillor Jasbir Anand, cabinet member for housing, said: “Comparing the different tariffs offered by energy companies can be confusing and time consuming. The energy switch scheme is the ideal opportunity for people to compare tariffs and make informed choices.
“The scheme aims to make it easier for people to get a better deal on energy bills by buying collectively with other Londoners. Nearly 10,000 Ealing Residents have registered their interest for the scheme, since the first auction in 2013. The 1,500 residents who made the switch saved £367,639 on their energy bills!
“We encourage residents to register before the next auction, so they can get a better deal and potentially lower bills.”
Anyone who pays a bill can participate, including tenants and residents on pre-pay meters. Join with Ealing residents today and see how much you can save.
