Power Switching

Switching could save you up to £525 on your gas and electricity

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 including those on prepayment meters 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 earlier rounds of the scheme saved on average £234.

Registration for the scheme is quick easy and without obligation. All of the information you need should be on your latest energy bill.

** Registration for the next round of The Big Power Switch opens on Tuesday 1st December and closes midnight on Monday 1st February. **

Anyone who registers will be contacted after 12th February to be told exactly how much they could save with The Big Power Switch.
