Big London Energy Switch - pay less for your energy bill

SHP is supporting a scheme to help you get a better deal on your gas and electricity bills.

The Big London Energy Switch is a collective energy switching scheme in which a group of local authority bodies, including SHP, join forces to help their residents pay less for their energy bills. 

The councils involved offer their residents the opportunity to group together and pay less for their energy. Here's how it works:

  1. Sign up for free

    You can sign up for the scheme for free and without obligation. Completing the registration form takes less than 5 minutes. You need to be signed up by 11 February

  2. Auction

    The Big London Energy Switch hold an auction for energy suppliers to submit their best offers. The supplier who offers the cheapest tariff will get to offer you a new contract. The more people who take part, the greater your chances are of getting a competitive energy deal! 

  3. Personal offer

    From 25 February you will receive your personal offer and you can see how much money you could save.

  4. You decide

    You have until 26 March to decide whether to accept your personal offer or not. If you accept the offer The Big London Energy Switch will take care of the entire switching process.

If you need any support completing the sign up form, our Welfare Support Officer Sharon Wright can help. Please contact Sharon by calling 020 8915 2000 and asking for her, or emailing
