Big Switch - Daventry District - Video

Visit  www.daventrydc.gov.uk/BigSwitch. Big Switch Daventry District is a joint effort between Daventry District Council and its switching partner iChoosr to use collective purchasing power to secure better energy deals for residents.
Everyone who registers for the Big Switch is entered into a national collective, with energy companies then invited to bid for their custom in an auction.
Because the auction is an opportunity for energy companies to secure thousands of customers in one go, the deals they offer in a bid to win that auction are often better than those advertised to the general public.
The sign-up process is quick and easy, with just an annual bill or indication of annual energy usage required. Find out more at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/BigSwitch
