Switching Scheme for Utility Supppliers

Good afternoon everyone!


Don’t forget registering to Buckinghamshire County Council Collective switching scheme where you can make savings on your energy bill.


This national scheme will join our residents, families and friends with other people from around the country in a large pool and then invite energy suppliers to bid in an auction to provide energy to this pool of people at a preferential lower rate. Once the supplier has been confirmed they will write to everyone with a personalised quote. There is no obligation to switch.


In the last round of Auction:


ü 41% of people who registered in Buckinghamshire were able to make a saving

ü The average savings in the county have been around £130 per year.

We have a website www.buckscc.gov.uk/switchedon where people can find out more and also register their interest. 


Winter Auction 2017-18 key dates:


  • Auction – Tuesday 13th February 2018
  • Offers – 26th February 2018
  • Closure – 27th March 2018

Deadline for registration is 12th February 2018. The auction for suppliers will take place on 13th February 2018. Please note that residents will need their existing energy bill(s) to complete your registration.
