Energy Switching Scheme

Collective switching is when consumers get together to negotiate a group deal with their gas and electricity suppliers.  Energy Deal, the Kent Council’s (Dover, Dartford, Gravesham, Tonbridge & Malling and Tunbridge Wells) collective energy switching scheme combines with similar initiatives around the UK in the Big Community Switch for the auction as the more households taking part, the better our chances of securing a competitive energy deal

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

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