Save money on your energy bills with Braintree’s Essex Energy Switch

Braintree District Council is inviting residents to sign up to a mass energy switch so they can find a better deal and save money on their energy bills.

Residents can register now until Monday 12th February 2018 with no obligation to switch. Over 3,000 residents in the Braintree District have saved on their gas and electricity bills since the switch launched in 2014.

A one-day auction will take place on Tuesday 13th February 2018 with energy companies coming forward to offer their best possible tariffs. 

Everyone who registers will receive a personalised offer which specifies how much they could save by switching to the winning provider. The last day to accept the offer is 27th March 2018.

Councillor Wendy Schmitt, Cabinet Member for Environment and Place, said: “Sign up and save, it's that simple! The energy switch is a hassle-free, secure way of cutting your energy bills – registering is free and there’s no obligation to switch. The more people who sign up for the scheme, the lower the offer price is likely to be so I hope this year even more people sign up so we can help to force bills down.”

Residents who have signed up for previous switches will need to re-register again to receive another offer.

To register for the next auction and for more information, visit or call 01376 552525 or the iChoosr helpline number on 0800 048 8285.
