Reduce Your Energy Bills

The Energy Deal Scheme could help you save money on your energy bills.

We aim to save you money by negotiating on your behalf to bring down the cost of your energy.

The more households taking part, the better the chances of securing a competitive energy deal.

It’s free to join and you don’t have to accept the winning offer.

How to Take Part

Registration requires details of your energy consumption (on energy bill/annual energy statement - preferably in kWhs), the name of your current supplier and your current tariff.

The next auction takes place in May 2019

  • The spring auction opens for registration 2nd April 2019
  • Auction will be held on 21st May 2019
  • Personal energy offers sent out from 3rd June 2019
  • You have until 2nd July 2019 to accept the offer if you wish to switch

Energy Deal holds 3 auction rounds a year, Autumn, Winter and Spring (auctions October, February and May). If your current fixed tariff is not due to expire in the next few months register and take part in one of the forthcoming rounds.

Due to restrictions on the scheme the Council is not allowed to send out reminders to residents who have switched through the scheme in the past 2 years.  Therefore please keep a note of your current tariff expiry date, and register for the auction that coincides with that date.

How it Works

The scheme is open to all households using gas and electricity who pay monthly, quarterly or via a pre-payment meter.

It’s free to register for the scheme, and residents are not obliged to switch energy supplier.

Registration will require details of annual energy consumption, current tariff/supplier, (shown on fuel bill/annual energy statement), and method of payment and should take less than 5 minutes to complete.

Once registration has closed, energy suppliers are invited to compete with their best offer at an energy auction, administered for the Council by iChoosr.

Residents registered with Energy Deal will then be sent a personalised offer showing the winning tariff, which you can then decide whether you want to accept.

If you decide to accept the offer, iChoosr then take care of the entire switch for you, meaning the whole thing is as smooth and hassle-free for you as possible.

Information on the terms and conditions and privacy policy can be found here.

Alternative energy switching options are available through Ofgem accredited  comparison sites.

Information on collective switching can be found on the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy website.

This scheme is organised by Dartford, Dover, Gravesham, Tonbridge and Malling and Tunbridge Wells Councils.
