McMillan welcomes Big Energy Switch Campaign

Stuart McMillan MSP (SNP – West of Scotland) has welcomed the Scotland-wide people power campaign to cut the cost of electricity and gas in Scotland.

The Big Energy Switch campaign, supported by a national TV and radio campaign, aims to use the huge buying power of 20,000 Scottish households to unlock group-discounted energy in Scotland.

One Big Switch said it is launching the campaign because average fuel bills in Scotland have risen nearly four times faster than household incomes since 2003.

The Big Energy Switch campaign aims to drive competition in the Scottish energy market by:

  • Signing up 20,000 Scottish consumers in the next 4 weeks,
  • Using their collective buying power to negotiate discounted electricity & gas offers,
  • Making this group-discounted offer available to those who join the campaign, and
  • Sparking an energy price war here in Scotland

This campaign will be the first exclusively Scotland-wide campaign of its type, focused purely on unlocking group-discounted energy here in Scotland.

Michael Stewart, the respected campaigner and football commentator, is directing the campaign, which is launching with a Scotland-wide television and radio campaign.

Mr Stewart said:

“This is a chance for people in Scotland to come together and use our collective power to deliver some real cost of living relief.

Stuart McMillan MSP added:

“One Big Switch has already helped tens of thousands of Australian and Irish families to access discounted electricity and gas offers using the power of group switching.

“Scottish consumers can use their collective power to put Scotland first, and unlock group-discounted energy for all Scottish families.

“National group switching campaigns, like the Big Energy Switch, have worked in other countries to help fight back against the rising cost of living, and now is the time for Scottish consumers to act together to unlock group-discounted energy here as well.”
