Switching energy suppliers can sometimes be a confusing and daunting process, which has not gone unrecognised by Peterborough Energy. The local energy tariff has both simplicity and transparency at its very core and in February 2016 launched its Home Visits scheme in collaboration with Green Energy Switch.

Whilst switching to Peterborough Energy is a simple and straightforward process it is entirely reasonable to want assistance with important issues like your energy supply. You may have questions that you want to discuss in person, or want an expert on hand to guide you through the process. Peterborough Energy has two Energy Advisors on hand to:

  • Help you understand your energy bills
  • Provide you with some simple and achievable energy-saving advice, as well as a goody-bag to help you live a low energy lifestyle
  • Show you how much you can save by switching to Peterborough Energy and assist you with your switch if you wish!

Every resident that switches following a Home Visit is also entered into a monthly prize draw to win a £50 shopping voucher!

Over 1,100 residents have switched to Peterborough Energy so far following a Home Visit, but we like to let our customers do the talking. See what two switchers have to say below:

Miss Romeo, of Westwood, saved £240

“I received a letter from Axiom Housing Association regarding Peterborough Energy and decided to book a Home Visit appointment with the Green Energy Switch team. Jay was my Energy Advisor and was friendly, full of information and I appreciated the free gifts he bought, including an energy-saving light bulb. It’s really great to have an extra £20 in my pocket each month and will help me out a lot. I’ve already encouraged my neighbours to switch and we’ll all receive an Amazon Gift Certificate when we do!”

Miss Reeve, of Bretton, saved £240

“I switched to Peterborough Energy following a referral from my cousins. Jay was our Energy Advisor and was really helpful, as well as a good laugh. He also explained the tariff in immense detail – much more so than any other company I’ve dealt with. I’ve saved £240 per year, which is really helpful considering Christmas is coming up. My cousins and I all received an Amazon Gift Certificate to when we signed up together.”


However more people in the area could still save money by changing their energy deal, says Citizens Advice Peterborough.

Around one in every five Peterborough households switched their electricity meter to a different supplier between October 2015 and September 2016 – adding up to the highest switching rate in England.

In total 15,520 city households switched to a new energy supplier; of these 4,455 homes switched at least one supply to local provider Peterborough Energy – the city council’s tariff – accounting for 28 percent of all switches that took place in the same period.

We also work closely with housing associations, such as Axiom and Accent, in order to further strengthen our customer experience. As a result of the brilliant service delivered by both our Energy Advisors and office staff we have been nominated for the Best Resident Engagement
