It’s a bit of a mouthful but a collective switch is actually a very simple concept.
It’s essentially bulk buying for gas and electricity. If consumers form a big group, they can get a better deal.
The more people that sign up to the collective switch, the more bargaining power they have. And that means the cheaper the electricity and gas they can get. There’s power in numbers!
We’ve been doing people powered collective switching for several years. We now have 400,000 members and saved them a total of £15 million. That’s a hell of a lot of purchasing power!
The average saving per family is nigh on £300. And the best bit is that it is hassle free. You just join the group for free and with zero obligations by giving us your email address and postcode. That’s it.
Then we go speak to every energy company in the country and negotiate the best possible deal for the collective switchers.
Once we’ve got the best deal we can we bring it straight to our members and you can decide if you want to take it. Noone has to if they don’t want to.
We were one of the very first people to do collective switches. But collective switching is now more and more mainstream with many other organisations following the Big Deal’s lead and doing their own switches. You may have seen ones run by your local council or price comparison websites.
But we’re different for three reasons:
- We always show you every deal in the market so you can compare how good our deal is compared to everything else out there. That’s only fair and transparent. Unfortunately if others don’t do that and just tell you to take their deal, you can be sure it’s because there are lots of better deals out there!
- We’re also the first and only people who do Clean Energy Switches. That’s where we use people power to bargain to reduce the cost of green energy. That means you can go green and save money! A great way to go 100% renewable, help the planet and help yourself too. Read more about our green switches here.
- We only do deals with smaller independent energy companies who really care about their customers and don’t rip them off.
Other collective switches are very happy to do deals with the Big 6 energy companies who rip off the old and vulnerable to boost their profits.
That’s not right. So if you want to get involved in our people power movement of hundreds of thousands, save huge amounts of money and hit back at the Big 6 then join the Big Deal for free. It takes just seconds to sign up.
