Dover District Council is reminding residents that they still have time to sign up for Energy Deal, the collective switching campaign that aims to help residents looking to reduce their gas and electricity bills - and registration closes on 2 February.
The Energy Deal scheme was developed by Dover, Dartford, Tunbridge Wells and Gravesham Councils, and now Tonbridge & Malling has joined the collaboration. Group buying offers a straightforward solution for residents to find out whether they can get a better deal and benefit by saving money on their home energy bills.
It's free to register and residents are not obliged to switch energy supplier. On 3 February, energy suppliers are invited to an energy auction, administered by iChoosr. Residents registered with Energy Deal will be sent a personalised offer showing the winning tariff, which they can then decide whether they want to accept.
The October auction saw a unique market leading tariff offered specifically for collective switching, with an average saving of £221.
Throughout the registration period, people who register from the participating Council areas are also being entered into a prize draw. One of the recent lucky winners was Mr Peter Kenney from Kingsdown.
