Wind turbine (windmill).The Essex Energy Switch is about residents coming together to save money on their gas and electricity bills. The more people that register as interested in switching provider, the bigger the potential saving per household. Residents could save as much as £250 a year on their energy bills.

Registering for the Energy Switch is quick, easy and helps avoid searching for the best deals as all the hard work is done for you. Once the registration window closes, energy companies will bid at an auction to see who can offer the lowest energy tariff.

Once the winning bidder has been selected, anyone who has registered will be contacted by them directly with more details and information on how to switch. Anyone that registered or switched their energy supplier through the Essex Energy Switch last year, will need to register again this year.

Once registered, there is no obligation to switch providers. Registering can be done online at www.essex.gov.uk/energyswitch

The Essex Energy Switch is managed by iChoosr, a national organisation which specialises in maximising the power of group buying. iChoosr can negotiate bespoke and market leading tariffs not available direct or via price comparison services.

Commented Lib Dem Stephen Robinson, "I've used this service twice in recent years and it was very easy to switch providers. I also took the opportunity to choose a 100% green option, so my home is now powered by carbon neutral electricity."
