Low Carbon Oxford North helps local people take practical action to combat climate change. We’ve teamed up with other groups across the city to launch the Oxford Big Clean Switch. We believe that by working together, Oxford can be the place where a greater percentage of people buy and use clean power than anywhere else in Britain.
Low Carbon Oxford North is proud to be partnering with the following organisations to deliver the Oxford Big Clean Switch:
▻ Local Environmental Action Florence Park
▻ the Low Carbon Hub
▻ Low Carbon West Oxford
▻ Oxford Friends of the Earth
▻ the Oxfordshire Community Action Groups network
▻ Rose Hill and Iffley Low Carbon

The costs of clean energy have fallen rapidly in recent years. Moving to a tariff that includes 100% renewable electricity doesn’t mean bigger bills – in fact, most people will save money by switching.
Oxford is already generating a lot of clean power from solar panels on homes, schools and businesses. But we’d like to get more people involved, and one of the best ways anyone can support clean energy in Britain is to switch to a renewable electricity tariff.Get a quote
‘Clean energy’ means power generated from the elements – sun, wind, water (rivers, tides or wave power) – and biofuels (such as gas released by rotting food and plants). 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.
You can find out more about the suppliers on the Big Clean Switch panel here, or read about how we choose which suppliers we work with here.
Switching your supplier supports community projects. 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, other than where we’ve negotiated an even better deal). Big Clean Switch uses the income to fund its campaign.
The Oxford Big Clean Switch will get around 25% of this money, which will go into a special fund. Some will be used to get more people switching, but most will be spent on small grants to community organisations that want to do more to save energy or improve their environment. This will be managed by Low Carbon Oxford North along with our coalition partners.
