The 280,000 people who signed up to the Which? Big Switch campaign are today set to find out which energy supplier has come out on top and is able to offer them the best available energy tariff.
The scheme was first unveiled a couple of months ago and aims to utilise collective energy buying to help homeowners find a competitive price. Those companies taking part include EDF Energy, E.ON and Co-Operative Energy. However, British Gas and several others refused to take part due to a lack of scheme transparency and uncertainty as to how much Which? would profit from the campaign.
A Which? spokesman says: “If it is done right, we think joining together to negotiate a better deal should be good for hard-pressed energy customers.”
Desperate times call for desperate measures. Due to the ever-increasing cost of energy bills there are millions of UK homeowners who are urgently seeking ways of cutting the cost of energy and the Big Switch is just one way in which it is hoped that cheaper energy can be secured.
Improving your property and making it more energy efficient can also make a massive difference to the cost of energy bills as a contemporary set of windows reduce heat loss and utilise any warm air generated in the home far more effectively.
To witness what new windows can do for your home in terms of insulation you should pay a visit to Wessex Windows showroom in Winchester or Tewkesbury. You can also view our wide selection of conservatories in Southampton and conservatories in Basingstoke which come ready-installed with energy efficient windows.
This means that they are a home extension that you can use at any time of the year, without it costing you a fortune to heat and keep warm.
