Did you sign up to the Switched On Hastings campaign? if so we have just been informed of the Switched on Hastings winning bidders and have been told by the council who the three winning suppliers are. Who you have as a supplier depends entirely on the payment method and other options you selected.


The Switched on Hastings winners have been announced

All of those that signed up for the campaign will be notified in writing over the next few days so fingers crossed, you get a deal worth taking.

The Switched on Hastings winners are (which might surprise you):

  • Scottish Power
  • Greenstar Energy
  • British Gas

And remember even if you have signed up to it you do not have to accept the offer and can carry on with you current supplier if you wish. Let us know your views on the offer you received below.

Want to bring down your gas and electricity bills? Hastings Borough Council might be able to help but you only have a week left to sign up to Switched On Hastings. If you sign up from now until midnight on 18 November 2013, you can be a part of their first ever ‘collective energy switching scheme’.

How does it work?

  • We buy energy as a community from the supplier with the best deal

    switched on hastings

    Switched On Hastings. Collectively get your gas and electric for less.

  • You can sign up now to take part in the scheme with no obligation. Make sure you have details of your current gas and electricity consumption to hand – visit www.uswitch.com for help with understanding how your bill is worked out
  • The more people who sign up, the greater our purchasing power and you can sign up if you live in Hastings, St Leonards and the surrounding area!
  • In November, various energy suppliers will compete to make the lowest offer in an auction. They determine their offer based on the number of people taking part – so make sure you get all your friends and family to sign up
  • The supplier with the lowest tariffs ‘wins’ the auction. Two weeks after the auction, you will get a personal offer by email from that supplier and will have a few weeks to decide whether or not to accept it
  • Better still, the process of switching from your current supplier/s will be seamless and simple
  • The auction takes place on 19 November.
