Scheme re-open for registrations

Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster, has announced a second round of Doncaster's Big Switch to help local residents drive down their energy bills.

It comes as Doncaster Council announces that the first round has saved residents across the borough more than £80,000.

The idea behind The Big Power Switch is simple – by coming together to buy energy, households can get a better deal. The more households that join the scheme, then the more bargaining power we will have when negotiating with the energy providers.

The energy switching scheme is being run by Doncaster Council as part of Mayor Ros Jones’ commitment to help reduce the cost of living for local people. Doncaster has joined a wider national collective energy buying scheme being managed by ichoosr on behalf of local authorities across the country.

Doncaster's recent Big Switch campaign was the most successful in the country with more registrations than any other area. A total of 385 people switched energy provider through our scheme, saving an average of £209 each. Some residents have saved as much as £600.

Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster, said: ‘I promised to help bring down the cost of living where possible and I am delighted that we have been able to save tens of thousands of pounds for local people.

‘The huge response to the first round of The Big Switch shows just how the cost of living crisis is affecting families and how important it is for us to help them save money on their gas and electricity bills.

‘This is the first of a programme of measures we will take to support local residents in these tough economic times.’

The latest round of the Mayor's Big Switch is now open. For more information and to register go to www.doncaster.gov.uk/switch
