The energy switching company, Energyhelpline, has confirmed it is to re-instate its HUGE Switch scheme to help consumers keep their energy costs to a minimum.

Whilst most of the UK is basking in warm temperatures, the cost of the recent harsh winter will still be resonating with many households who will be keen to achieve the cheapest energy tariff in advance of cooler weather setting in.

According to the company, the average annual energy bill in the UK stands at £1,420, with energy firms widely expected to increase prices by up to 10% over the next few months.

The HUGE Switch 3 scheme will let consumers purchase energy collectively as a group, in turn allowing energyhelpline to offer the most competitive energy deals.

Mark Todd, director of energyhelpline, said that the HUGE Switch 3 would create a bigger impact based on the number of people who support it.

"HUGE Switch is clear proof that people power really does work. Not only did consumers save hard earned cash, they were finally offered some relief after a long winter of sky rocketing energy bills with these exclusive deals," he said.

"It's our intention to prove to all energy suppliers that if they offer cheap deals, consumers will come to them."
