The idea behind collective energy switching is simple: a large group of people use their bulk-buying power to negotiate unique deals from energy suppliers. The more the merrier, as better deals are likely to be offered to big groups of customers. Plus remember, there's absolutely no obligation to switch if you don't want to!
Collective switching uses the power of a collective to access exclusive, market beating energy rates that you wouldn't be able to find anywhere on the open market. Energy companies are willing to do this as the value of a group of people is much greater than the value of an individual so they'll compete to get your business and offer you cheap deals!

Switching energy suppliers with us is FREE, simple and can save you up to £657* a year. Plus you'll raise a free donation for your charity!
When you switch using Give as you Live, you'll not only get a great deal, you'll also raise up to £17 for your charity. That's what we call a win-win!
We compare all UK suppliers and we're not biased to any particular provider. Our calculator is also OFGEM accredited and kept accurate and relevant.
* Average savings achieved by customers during the Autumn 2017 collective with energyhelpline. Sample of over 500 switches.
Our gas and electricity price comparison service is powered by energyhelpline, whose service meets the requirements of the Confidence Code – a voluntary code of practice for household energy price comparison websites managed by OFGEM. As a founding signatory to the Code, they pride themselves on providing a service that is high quality.
Yes the more the merrier. Invite your friends and family no matter where they live in the UK.
We won't be able to tell you precisely the amount you can save until the supplier deal(s) are finalised. Typical customer savings are £250 a year.
Once the collective is open for switching, we will inform you of the winning deal(s) and how much you could save. The deals will be available for around 4 weeks for switching.
No. There is absolutely no obligation. You are just expressing an interest.
Yes. We will have winning deals that cover all the main payment methods - including direct debit, pay on receipt of bill, and pre-payment meter.
The cheapest deals tend to be monthly direct debit, but there is still plenty of opportunity to get a good deal irrespective of the payment method.
Yes all contracts are for only 28 days. On the switching site you will be able to see how much you could save by switching and whether your current fixed deal has a cancellation penalty or not.
These details are accessible via a link at the top of our results table. If your savings are greater than your penalty fee it may be worth changing.
Towards the end of fixed energy deals (normally 4-5 weeks) no cancellation fee is payable for leaving.
Yes. We have a pre-payment winning tariff and we also show all the other options on the market. We expect most pre-payment customers will find a saving.
If you are the named person on your fuel bill, you currently pay them (or are the registered customer for your pre-payment meter) you have the right to change supplier and can sign up without contacting your landlord.
If your landlord pays the bills or is the named person for your pre-payment meter, you can still sign up but they will need to complete the switch.
You may be able to. It depends on who you choose to switch to and what their exact rules are.
If you are in more than £100 of debt on your electricity or gas bill you may not be able to switch, unless you pay off that debt before you make the switch. If your debt is less than £100 you are likely to able to move the debt across.
We have regional and national winners so we expect the vast majority of customers will be able to save. However, in some circumstances customers who are already on very competitive deals may find they are better off sticking with the energy supplier they already have.
We are committed to providing transparent, personalised advice, showing you clearly whether our collective deal works or not for you. And the choice to switch is always yours, so there is no harm in registering.
Switching energy provider normally takes 2-3 weeks dependent on the supplier.
energyhelpline, our comparison partner, will do everything for you, you don't even need to notify your current supplier that you're leaving. We have a customer service team available on email and over the phone to help make sure everything goes smoothly.
Once your switch is live and you have cleared any debt we advise customers to:
These things are meant to be done automatically but are not always.
Again there's no obligation to switch if you register. As well as showing you the savings that you could make you can see also see suppliers' customer service ratings on our results table.
If you decide to switch, the energy supplier pays a commission to both us and energyhelpline. The total commission is typically £25-30 per fuel.
Our share is split 50:50 with half being donated to your chosen charity. Any donation amounts we display represent the full amount the charity will get.
The share retained by energyhelpline is used to power the switching service - including the website, price comparison checks, call centre and customer service operations.
energyhelpline is one of the UK's leading energy price comparison services and is accredited to the OFGEM confidence code to assure you that their comparisons are impartial and accurate.
Once you are happy with the deal we have found you then you can join Give as you Live and select a charity from over 200,000, which will include schools, churches, social clubs and traditional charities.
Yes, you don't have to sign up to take advantage of the deal we find for you. However, if you sign up you can choose which charity receives the money you raise. If you don't sign up, we'll give the money to our featured charity.
