Run by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, YORSwitch takes the hassle out of switching suppliers. The Council’s appointed energy broker searches the whole market for the best, bespoke energy deals available and presents them to the company, clearly highlighting the key terms, with no obligation.
It’s not just households that can switch to a better value energy tariff - businesses in the East Riding can do the same.
The process works a little differently, but if you’ve never switched your business gas or electricity then you could cut your bills by as much as 30% - and you can do so with our trusted energy-switching partner, Make It Cheaper.
Their service makes it easy for local small and medium enterprises to get a better value deal for their energy. In one quick phone call a Make It Cheaper expert can compare prices from different suppliers, help you choose the right tariff and set up your contract. This means they'll save your business time and hassle as well as reducing your costs and boosting your profits.
Make It Cheaper will also ensure you get a fair deal for your gas or electricity when your contract is up for renewal, making certain you avoid unnecessarily expensive rates in the future.

The scheme is targeted at the twelve thousand micro, small and medium sized businesses in the East Riding, as well as community buildings and charities.
Only around twenty percent of these businesses currently engage with the energy market, paying on average thirty five percent more for their energy. Switching suppliers is complex due to the numerous tariffs and meters, most not published by the energy companies, and time bound termination periods. Many businesses do not have the time or resource to understand and tackle the energy market, even though the cost savings which could be achieved are considerable.
If the offer is accepted, assistance is offered in serving termination notices, making sure credit score criteria is established and other duties required for switching. Contracts can be arranged electronically or on paper and each business chooses the length of the contract that best suits them.
YORSwitch is there every step of the way: looking after post-sale management, providing support for the duration of contract and managing the renewal process if requested.
There is no fee for signing up to YORSwitch, Cheaper Business Energy, as the energy broker is paid a referral fee by the energy suppliers each time a business switches. For competitive reasons, the fee is undisclosed but the broker is committed to providing a non-biased service, for example, sales representatives do not know the referral fee amounts.
There is no obligation to accept any offer, so YORSwitch is a useful way to benchmark your existing contract and find out if you are paying too much.
