Helping a city switch energy supplier

CSE to help Bristol collectively ‘switch and save’

31 January 2013

CSE has won funding from Government to develop a new group buying scheme for Bristol households.

‘Bristol Switch and Save’ will sign up households across the city interested in paying less for their gas and electricity  – and then negotiate a collective deal from the energy market on their behalf.

Working with partners Bristol City Council, Bristol Credit Union and Bristol Pound, we will be trying to reach households who haven’t switched energy supplier for some time, don’t commonly use comparison websites and/or are confused about their options for buying energy.

Along with helping customers switch to a cheaper deal, we will be offering a green energy option which boosts the local economy by enabling people to pay in the city’s new local currency, the Bristol Pound.

The scheme will be launched later in February, when householders will be able to register online, by phone or by post. Watch this space.
