Greater Manchester Combined Authority is committed to making the city a clean energy leader. We face major environmental challenges that threaten the health and prosperity of our region. Greater Manchester is taking action with the 5-Year Environment Plan, to be launched at the Green Summit. The plan sets out our long-term environmental vision – to be carbon neutral by 2038 – and the urgent actions we all need to take in the next 5 years to help achieve this.

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, or even lower, than they are on suppliers’ own websites.
Greater Manchester Combined Authority will use a small part of its share 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.
