Cut Energy Bills - Switch Together

Energy Advice - Keep Me Posted

Collective switching is when consumers get together to negotiate a group deal with their gas and electricity suppliers.

We aim to save you money by negotiating on your behalf to bring down the cost of your energy. The more households taking part, the better our chances of securing a competitive energy deal.

It’s free to join and you don’t have to accept the winning offer
