Essex Energy Switch

Essex Energy Switch is a collective energy switching scheme for residents and businesses who want to cut their energy bills.

The scheme is run by Essex County Council in partnership with us.

The more people who take part, the greater the chances of getting a competitive energy deal.

Who is it for?

Anyone who pays an energy bill can take part. This includes homeowners, tenants and customers on pre-payment meters.

You can register for electricity and gas or just for one or the other.

Small and medium-sized businesses can also register through the business bureau service.


You can sign up for free to register your interest.

To register, you will need:

  • your name, address and contact details
  • the name of your current energy supplier and current tariff
  • your energy consumption in kWh or spend (see your energy bill)

Completing the registration form takes less than 5 minutes.


How does it work?

After you have registered, energy suppliers are invited to take part in the auction to bid against each other for the best deal. 

The winning supplier will be the one making the lowest offer.

You will receive an email with an offer based on the usage information you have submitted. 

You are under no obligation unless to decide to switch.

If you decide to switch, you just need to confirm you want to accept the offer before the deadline. 

Essex Energy Switch then take care of the switch for you.
