Cut Energy Bills - Switch Together

Energy Advice - Keep Me Posted

Dover District Council has offered Energy Deals since Collective energy switching began in the UK in 2013 partnering with iChoosr to help residents save money on their energy bills by using combined buying power to access highly competitive tariffs.

Participation is completely free with no obligation to switch.   Energy Deal holds 3 auction rounds a year, Autumn, Winter and Spring (auctions October, February and May). Register for the auction round that most closely aligns to the end of your current fixed tariff.

Winners of the auction held on 19 May 2020  

So Energy won: - Dual fuel and electricity only online contracts
           
Together Energy won: - Dual fuel and electricity only paper billing contracts

E.ON won: -  Pre Payment meter contracts

You’ll receive your personal energy offer from the beginning of June 2020.  You then decide if you want to switch.  If you do want to switch you’ll need to complete and submit acceptance forms by 30 June 2020.

If you’ve missed the registration deadline and you live in the Dover District area (or any of the other Energy Deal participating Authority areas) you too could benefit from the May auction offers by completing the registration form now.

How to take part

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

For more information and to register use the following links:

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.

Four things you should do

  • Grab your bill and register yourself - it's free, easy and without obligation

  • Tell your neighbours about the scheme

  • Help your relatives if they are not used to registering their details online (you can register on their behalf)

  • Help people without internet access to register with you online or call 0800 048 8439 for assistance

Registration for the October auction will open in August 2020
