Tonbridge and Malling Council is working with Energy Deal a collective switching scheme which aims to support householders in accessing cheaper energy tariffs.
Collective switching is when consumers get together to negotiate a group deal with gas and electricity suppliers. It is usually facilitated by a third party who actively negotiates a better tariff on behalf of the group. Energy Deal is led by a number of local Kent councils working in partnership with iChoosr as part of the Big Community Switch.
The scheme is open to all householders who pay for gas and electricity or electricity only. It is free to register for the scheme and there is no obligation to switch energy supplier. Registration will require details of annual energy consumption, current tariff/supplier and preferred method of payment.
The latest round of the scheme is now open and residents have until 9 October 2017 to register their interest. Energy suppliers are then invited to compete with their best offer at an energy auction. Residents registered with Energy Deal will then be sent a personalised offer showing how much they could save with the offer, which they can then decide whether they want to accept. For more information or to register on line, please see Energy Deal.
