Dover District Council has offered Energy Deal 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.

Registration for the Spring auction is now open. 

The auction will be held on 19 May 2020

Personal energy offers will be sent out from 1 June 2020

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.

You don't have to live in one of our districts to take part. 

For more information and to register select your local council:

Due to restrictions on the scheme we are 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

Four things you should do

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