This is exciting: people power is taking on dirty energy.
More than 104,000 of us have said we’re interested in switching to better, cleaner energy. By coming together in our thousands we’ve been able to strike a people-powered deal with a clean energy company: if you like it, you can switch today.
Here’s the low-down on what the people-powered deal looks like – from our expert switching partners at The Big Deal:
The winner is… Good Energy
And here’s the tariff they’re offering to 38 Degrees members:
This deal is only open until 28th September. So please don’t leave it too long to get involved!
There will be cheaper dirty energy deals on the market – but as this was negotiated as a people-powered deal, it’s both clean energy and at a price that beats the standard offers from the Big 6 by over £200.
Now there’s an exciting deal on the table, can you take the next step and join the big people-powered clean energy switch?
Here’s how it’ll work:
Once you’re ready to be a part of the switch it will only take about 5 minutes to sign up. All you need to have to hand is a few personal details. Here are the four steps to follow:
1. Enter your email address and postcode into the switch website: https://secure.38degrees.org.
2. Enter some basic details about your current energy supplier, so they can calculate how much you’ll be spending with Good Energy (but it’s ok if you don’t know all your details)
3. See how much you’ll save and decide whether or not you want to switch
4. If you decide to switch, please enter your bank details into the secure website and the team at the Big Deal will take care of the rest for you. Simple.
By joining this switch you’ll be making 38 Degrees history. We’ve come together in our thousands to stand up for our planet, and call out big companies looking to profit from its destruction: across the UK we’re standing up to dirty companies who want to frack in our countryside.
But now, we’re using our consumer power to beat them too. Changing where we get our gas and electricity on our own can feel like a tough move. But by switching together we’re getting a better deal. And we’re sending a strong message to dirty energy companies and the government – we’re sick of being ripped off, misled, and treated badly.
Thousands of 38 Degrees members have signed up to be a part of the clean energy switch. Here’s why Hannah from Birmingham is involved: “The more of us that can go on to using green, ethical power companies, the better. We need to save the environment and the world from dangerous climate change and also find renewable energy sources before we run out of fossil fuels.”
Let’s get going!
