The Big Issue works to dismantle poverty and create a fairer, more equitable society. We don’t think it’s right that around two thirds of UK households are on the most expensive ‘standard variable’ tariffs with one of the Big Six energy firms. At the same time, just as the impacts of climate change are becoming ever more apparent, government support for clean power is dwindling.
By proving that we can go clean and save money, we can help to accelerate Britain’s transition to a fairer, greener energy system. Let’s take the power out of the hands of the fat cats, and make energy work for everyone.
Most homes in the UK are on what’s known as a ‘standard variable’ tariff with one of the Big Six energy suppliers. All of those people are guaranteed to save money by switching to the cheapest clean tariff. In fact, in some parts of the country, our cheapest supplier is within £25 a year of the very cheapest deal on the market, which means you get great value and clean electricity.
‘Clean energy’ means power generated from the elements – sun, wind, water (rivers, tides or wave power) and biofuels (gas released by rotting food and agricultural waste). Unlike dirty electricity generated by burning fossil fuels (oil, coal and gas), clean energy has little impact in terms of climate change and air pollution.Get Started
Whenever you change supplier through a website like Big Clean Switch, your new energy company pays the website a commission. This doesn’t affect the price of the tariffs we offer, which are the same price as they are on suppliers’ own websites, and Big Clean Switch uses the income to fund its campaign. When you switch through this page, a third of that commission is passed to The Big Issue to help support their mission in Dismantling Poverty and creating opportunity through self-help, social trading and business solutions .
