It's simple to get involved. You switch with Energy Relief online here: http://switch.energyrelief.co.uk. When you've switched you can choose which community project or charity to support by sending them 100% of the switching fee (normally kept by the switching site).
In simple terms we are a switching site for energy, there’s quite a few of us around. You’ve probably used many sites like us before looking for the best deal for your home to ensure your energy costs are at the best rates in the current market. However, there is one major difference between Energy Relief and every other switching site you’ll come across; Energy Relief is the first not –for- profit switching site. So, you can switch your supplier and save money (just like on every other site available online today, our gas and electricity comparisons are powered by our third party search engine that is accredited to the Ofgem Confidence Code, so you’ll always get the best offers and the same deals as other sites, but your switching fee (which you didn’t know existed until now!) will be donated to the charity/ cause of your choice. It’s that easy!!
Whether you have a national charity close to your heart or a local cause you wanted to support but didn’t have the spare cash, Energy Relief will donate circa £20 (single energy user) or £40 (dual energy user) to the project of your choice. You could even decide to support Energy Relief’s bigger picture; To power homes in Africa. So what are you waiting for? Join the Revolution; Switch, Save and Support today!
Let’s be honest, why wouldn’t we?! From the moment this light bulb moment happened; ‘We can save people money and donate to charity & local projects at the same time’. We’ve worked tirelessly to make Energy Relief a reality. Ultimately there are so many great charities and projects doing amazing things for those in need, it is difficult to support them all. Energy Relief will give the sites users the ability to donate that little bit extra to a cause they care about or want to support. Every switch will make a difference to someone somewhere, and that’s a wonderful feeling.

You will need your postcode, you need to know who your current supplier is, and the name of the tariff you are on; this is all available on your bill. If you get stuck email us a copy of your bill and we will fill it out for you.
When you’ve entered your details you can click 'compare now' and see what options are available to you; who the cheapest supplier is, and most importantly, you can see the full range of market options from the big 6 to the little guy.
Choose your supplier based on your preferences and switch.
Ideally, the switch should take no longer than 17 days from the date you arranged to change supplier. This allows for a 14 day “cooling off period” where you can change your mind about switching. This comes after energy regulator Ofgem challenged gas and electricity companies to cut their switching times.
Immediately after you’ve clicked to switch, you will be able to support your chosen community project or charity; from projects locally to supporting families in Africa with a solar panel and charging station; it’s up to you! We can do this because energy suppliers pay a switching fee to “switching sites” which we then pass onto to a charity or community project of choice. So, this means your offers are the same but the switching fee’s (that you didn't know about until now!) which normally go back into the pocket of the switching site, are instead recycled into projects, charities, and communities you want to support!
