The people will have their power! And save a few quid hopefully
Last week, we told you about The Big Switch! – the new collective bargaining plan that has been hatched by Which! and political campaigners 38 Degrees. But, as with most things in life, there is an alternative.
‘thePeoplesPower’ is a smiliar kind of wheeze and it works thus – people sign up and when there’s 5,000 of them, thePeoplesPower will speak to the energy suppliers (large and small) and try to solicit the best deal they can get. The deal will then be offered to the punters who have signed up, and if they like it, they can switch as part of the collective. If they don’t like the offered deal, there’s no obligation to switch. Simples, as that rat said on the telly.
With The Big Switch gathering in traction, is it an either/or situation? Nope – you’re free to sign up for both ‘campaigns’ (or indeed any others that might appear on the market). Or you could do nothing. It's a free country, apparently.
