Westminster Collective Energy Switching Scheme
Average annual combined energy bills grew by more than £150 last year. At the same time, DECC figures (from 2012) showed that there had been a gradual decline in the number of households switching supplier and missing out on potential cash savings.
As a result, we originally joined the Big Community Switch along with many other local authorities across the country in February 2013. By joining a collective we were able to ask energy companies to bid for your business to get a better deal.
Registration for the November auction is now closed
Outcome of November 2013 auction
For our most recent scheme we invited residents, staff and stakeholders to register to join. Registration closed on Monday 18th November 2013 and the Big Community Switch auction ran on Tuesday 19th November 2013. After a series of competetive rounds involving the Big Six and smaller suppliers we can now annouce the winners as:

- Duel fuel PPM: Scottish Power
