Switch and Save


Get cheaper energy together: Join our collective switch today.

You could save money on your gas and electricity by switching energy supplier. Warwickshire County Council is running its second collective energy switch for residents.

Our most recent auction resulted in very competitive tariffs with average household savings of £128 a year.

Warwickshire County Council has partnered with iChoosr, independent experts in group buying, to help residents save money on their gas and electricity bills by using combined buying power to access highly competitive tariffs from suppliers.

You have until 27 November to register your interest and benefit from the energy deal secured from the recent auction which took place on October 9th.

How to register

You will need to have a recent energy bill or a copy of your annual statement to hand. Your name will need to appear on the bill.

    • You will receive an offer from 22 October 2018 onwards. Please check your email spam/junk folder if you do not receive your offer by 20 November 2018 and you’re accepting online. You can contact us on 0800 988 2881(free phone line) if you haven’t received your offer.

Understanding your bill

Fixed term contracts

You should consider if there are any possible early termination fees if you are on a fixed term contract with your current energy supplier. These should not apply in the last 49 days of your contract.

Standard tariffs

Many suppliers have increased their standard tariffs in the last few months, so now is a good time to see how much you can save. These are their ‘standard variable tariffs’. Suppliers will put you on this if you haven’t switched before or if your fixed term contract has ended. Seven out of ten households are on a standard tariff, which means they could save the most by switching.

Fixed contract

If your fixed period is coming to an end in the next month or so, you should be able to switch without penalty, some fixed contracts come with exit fees (or early termination fees). These should not apply in the last 49 days of your fixed term contract.
