Switch to a clean energy tariff

We're part of a campaign that aims to help you save money by switching your home to a clean tariff. Most UK homes are guaranteed to save money by switching to the cheapest clean deal.

How to switch

Use the Big Clean Switch website to compare your existing supplier with green energy tariffs. 

You'll need to answer a few questions about your current energy supplier. 

Compare prices and find out how to switch

What green energy is

‘Green energy’ is power generated from the elements, such as the sun, wind, water and biofuels. Dirty electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels, like oil, coal and gas. 

Green energy is renewable and has little impact in terms of climate change and air pollution.

Why use green energy

There are many good reasons to switch to using green energy, for example:

  • We estimate that switching to a clean tariff could save an average home around £335 a year
  • If just one in every 100 homes in Greater Manchester switched to clean electricity, it would be equivalent to taking over 10,000 cars off the road for a year
  • The cheapest clean energy suppliers are market leaders when it comes to customer satisfaction
  • When you switch through the Big Clean Switch, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority donates £35 to fund social and environmental projects in Greater Manchester
