Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) have a pioneering green energy campaign: The GM Big Clean Switch Campaign.
This green energy campaign can help you save money by switching your fuel tariff to a renewable energy tariff.
Hundreds from across Greater Manchester have switched their homes to clean electricity as part of this campaign to save money on their energy bills and help the environment at the same time. As well as all 10 Greater Manchester local authorities, a host of other organisations from across the city including Greater Manchester NHS, football clubs, universities and businesses are backing the Greater Manchester Big Clean Switch campaign, the first of its kind in the UK.
A dedicated Greater Manchester Big Clean Switch website, www.bigcleanswitch.org/gm, has been set up to help residents compare clean energy prices and switch.
The average household saving for switching through this campaign is £300 a year.
The scheme is a partnership between the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the Big Clean Switch campaign, which specialises in helping UK households switch to 100% renewable electricity. The programme is funded through commission paid by suppliers. This doesn’t affect the tariffs available, which will always be the same or better than those on the suppliers’ own websites, and a third of the money will be used by the GMCA to help fund environmental projects across the region.
In addition to all 10 local authorities in Greater Manchester, other local organisations backing the campaign include:
· Adactus Homes
· Barlcays Eagle Labs
· 95.6 Bolton FM
· Bolton Wanderers FC
· Carbon Co-op
· Manchester City of Trees
· Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce
· Greater Manchester Community Renewables
· Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation
· I Love MCR
· Manchester Climate Change Agency
· Manchester Metropolitan University
· NHS in Greater Manchester
· Onward Housing
· Salford Red Devils
· University of Salford
Green Energy campaign – it’s cheap and clean
Bulb are making waves by selling 100% renewable electricity at a great price, with market-leading customer service to boot. They’re offering a £25 account credit to anyone switching to them through Big Clean Switch. That means that an average home on a typical Big Six tariff could save £299* over the next 12 months. Even better, Bulb will pay your exit fees if you leave your current fixed term contract early – just send them a copy of your final bill and they’ll credit your account with the same amount within two working days. You’ll need to hurry, because this Bulb offer ends at 5pm on 20 April, and is limited to the first 3,000 homes that apply.
Go super green!
If you fancy going one step greener, Big Clean Switch have secured an exclusive tariff from Bristol Energy that offers not only 100% renewable electricity, but also 100% renewable gas! You’ll see that tariff listed below the Bulb offer at the top of their results table.
