My Home Energy Switch is a free and wholly independent energy supply financial inclusion service set up by the National Housing Federation (NHF). to help people living in housing association properties.
If you have never previously switched your gas or electricity supplier you will almost certainly save money by switching. On average, customers who switched after using the My Home Energy Switch service during the last 12 months have saved £200 per year.
Even if you have switched before, energy prices and tariffs change frequently, so it is recommended you check your prices every 6-9 months. It takes only around five minutes to compare energy suppliers and tariffs using My Home Energy Switch, although the whole process can take between 5-8 weeks to complete. Don’t worry if you don’t have a computer as you can also switch over the phone by calling 0800 001 4706.
In order to switch your supplier online you will need the following details:
– Postcode, as energy prices vary between areas
– Your current energy supplier
– Copy of your latest bill
– How much gas and electricity you use or how much you spend
– Bank or credit card details if you decide to switch.
