What is collective purchasing and switching?

The Collective Energy Switching Scheme allows thousands of customers to come together and seek the best energy deal that is available in the energy market. Together we have been and are able to find you the best deal and an easy way to switch.

There's no price cap on business energy. Compare deals to find cheaper prices than your supplier's out of contract rates.

How does a collective switch work?

Registration -  until the 10th of October

More than 6,000 people have already signed up to get a great deal this winter. Hurry up!

Auction – takes place on the 11th of October

During the auction, suppliers will put forward their best offers which are not typically offered on the market. As a collective group, collective switch subscribers have a stronger bargaining power, therefore, suppliers will be competing against each other to win the auction.

Personal Offer – is released on the 24th of October

Once the auction is finished, customers will have the option to view the tariff offered and decide if the deal suits their needs. At this point, there is no obligation to switch.

Acceptance Period – until the 29th of November

From the 24th of October to the 29th of November, customers will have to decide whether to accept a personal offer or not. If the offer is accepted, we will take care of the entire switching process for you.
