Join Cornwall's Collective Energy Switch!

Householders across Cornwall can join forces to cut their energy bills through our new initiative called Community Energy Switch.

The initiative is being led by Community Energy Plus, the Cornwall-based charity which works to help householders reduce their energy use and ensure that they can afford to heat their homes.  They’ve partnered with the national switching organisation energyhelpline to deliver this initiative and link into the group buying power of several other collectives across the country at the same time.

Cold homes and fuel poverty cause around 350 deaths a year locally, however there’s a much larger number of people who experience poor health and wellbeing as a consequence of living in cold homes.  Community Energy Switch provides the opportunity for everyone taking part to reduce their energy bills, but for some of the lowest income households in Cornwall it could mean the difference between living in a warm rather than cold home.

By joining Cornwall's collective energy switch you could save an average of £254* a year, based on the savings from Community Energy Switch’s March 2015 collective switch.

The more people that register, the more power that Community Energy Switch has to negotiate a special deal with energy suppliers and the more money those taking part will save!

Registration is free, quick and simple with no obligation to switch.   Register online at http://www.communityenergyswitch.org.uk or call Freephone 0800 804 7247.

Dates of collective energy switches

Autumn switch: Register from 21st September, switching open from 19th October to 16th November 2015.

Winter switch: Register from 11th January 2016, switching open from 8th February to 7th March 2015.

While the greatest savings will be possible during the collective switching periods, Community Energy Switch can still help you to get a good deal on your energy bills at other times.
