The Big Power Switch – switch together, save together

Big Switch logo

As household budgets continue to become increasingly squeezed, Doncaster Council will be working to help you to keep the cost of living down with a range of schemes to ensure you are on the best possible gas and electricity tariffs for you.

The idea is simple - the more households who register for The Big Power Switch, then the more bargaining power the scheme has to drive down the cost of energy.

Home owners, private tenants and council tenants are all eligible for the scheme (though private tenants should check that their tenancy agreement doesn’t restrict them from switching suppliers). Households don’t have to be within Doncaster to take advantage of the scheme, so be sure to tell your friends and family living in other areas that they can also enjoy the potential savings.

Households who registered for the scheme when it ran earlier in the year saved on average £234.

Matthew Fletcher from Stainforth, who saved £525 through The Big Power Switch said "I'm delighted to be saving money thanks to the council's scheme. The extra money will certainly come in handy for me.”

** Registrations are currently closed but you can regester your interest in future schemes and you'll be contacted when the next scheme opens ** 

Households that have registered will be contacted after Friday 24th October to be told exactly how much they could save with The Big Power Switch and will have until Monday 24th November to decide if they want to switch.
