We love clean energy, and we love Greater Manchester, so we’ve brought the two together in a new series of case studies showcasing environmental innovation and leadership from across the region. We’ll be adding to these over the weeks ahead – if you’d like to suggest a project or business, get in touch.
Whenever anyone switches energy company through a third party like the Big Clean Switch, the supplier pays 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 its share to help pay for the overall Big Clean Switch campaign.
Greater Manchester Combined Authority will use a small part of its share (which is between £10 and £20 when you switch both your gas and electricity) to help cover the costs of promoting the campaign in Greater Manchester, with the remainder going to local environmental projects, such as energy efficiency schemes to help lower carbon emissions and reduce bills.
There are two types of energy tariffs: ‘fixed’, where the price of a unit of energy won’t change for a set amount of time (usually a year); and ‘variable’, where the supplier can change the price of the energy they sell, providing they give you advanced warning. If you choose a fixed rate tariff, bear in mind that prices could go up at the end of the contract, so make sure you put a note in your diary to check prices again around that time. There’s more information about the differences between fixed and variable tariffs on our help page.
