West Berkshire Energy Switch Winter Auction

Want to see if you can pay less for your electricity and gas bills? The West Berkshire Energy Switch Winter Auction is now open for registration. 

According to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, at the end of September 2017, 64% of electricity customers and 62% of gas customers were on variable energy tariffs. These customers are paying an average of £113 more for their electricity and £110 more for their gas, annually than those on fixed tariffs.  

The West Berkshire Energy Switch has saved switchers over £93,000 since the first switch in May 2016. Those residents registering and switching in the recent October auction saved an average of £220.52 on their annual energy bills.  

The West Berkshire Energy Switch is a free to join scheme which gives residents the chance to see if they can make savings on their fuel bills by registering to take part. A one day reverse auction will be held on the 13th February, where suppliers compete with their best offers, the winning supplier/s then send registrants their personalised offer for consideration. There is no obligation to switch. Sign up and see if you can save; to register or find out more, visit

 You will need to have your latest energy bill to hand, as you’ll need the details during the registration process. Registration is open to all, so tell your friends and family. Register by midnight on Monday 12th February to be sure of taking part (West Berkshire residents will have an extended sign up period until 27th March to sign up and accept their offer).

 West Berkshire residents without internet access can contact West Berkshire Council on 01635 503267 to register – remember to have your energy bill or annual statement to hand when you call.
