Take part in the Big London Energy Switch and save on bills this winter

Kingston is teaming up with 17 other London Councils to help residents secure cheaper electricity and gas tariffs by taking part in the Big London Energy Switch.

The Big London Energy Switch scheme, which is a free, no obligation service, has so far helped Kingston households cut up to £573 off their annual utility bills this year.

Councillor Cathy Roberts, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Housing at Kingston Council, said:

“Winter is approaching and there’s no better time for residents to check they’re getting the best deal on their energy tariff. When we ran this scheme in 2014, the average savings were over £200 per household. This year, residents are saving as much as £573, which is staggering. “I urge local people to see if they could save money through this scheme. Simply sign up on the Big London Energy Switch website by midnight on Tuesday 13 October and you’ll receive an offer by email a couple of weeks later. “It’s important that we protect those who are vulnerable, which is why we have a number of energy efficiency initiatives in place to help, from home improvement grants to electricity meter loans. My hope is that residents make the most of all the Council offers, in order to have warm, comfortable homes this winter.”
