How the Big Community Switch works

Taking part is free.  People have the chance to group together and pay less for their energy.  The more people who take part, the more competitive the energy deal.  

Following the auction, participating residents will each receive a personal offer and have a month to decide whether to switch or not.  For those who want to go ahead then the switching process is simple and it's all done for you. 

Big Community SwitchIn 2020, for the first time, 100 per cent renewable energy tariffs from wind, biomass and solar are available for electricity at competitive market prices. 

Mendip District Council and other local authorities across the country have been joining forces for the Big Community Switch since 2013.  

The initiative supports Mendip's commitment to help residents and businesses work together with the Council to be carbon neutral by 2030.
