30 March 2012: Energyhelpline launches Huge Switch campaign
Energyhelpline has today announced the launch of the Huge Switch, a collective purchasing scheme designed to offer consumers a better deal for their energy.
The scheme works in a similar way to how other recent high-profile collective purchasing campaigns. Customers register for the program through the energyhelpline website prior to the mid-April closing date, then energyhelpline will contact suppliers to negotiate a deal for the entire group.
How the Huge Switch differs from other schemes however, is that customers can see what the current available best market price is for them when they register, so they can switch immediately if they prefer. The Huge Switch also logs customer’s preferences, so those looking for a green tariff or for a tariff with no standing charges for example can still take part in the collective bargaining experience.
A spokesman for consumer advocate group Which? commented, "It's great to see more collective switching schemes being launched that have the potential to shake up the energy market.
"If done right, we think that joining together to negotiate better deals should be good for hard-pressed energy customers. We encourage people to register with as many schemes as possible to get the best tariff."
