Collective switching is when consumers get together to negotiate a group deal with their gas and electricity suppliers. The more households taking part, the better our chances of securing a competitive energy tariff. Energy Deal (the scheme run by a collaboration of Kent Councils) joins with other Council run schemes countrywide at auctions held 3 times a year(run by iChoosr) . 

Collective switching in the UK turns five years old this year, and nearly one million registrants have joined across the UK.  To mark this milestone the one millionth UK registrant will be given one year’s free energy. Could the one millionth registrant be you? (Terms & Conditions apply)

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