Why not find out if you could get a better deal on your energy - the latest round of Dover District Council’s collective energy switching scheme, Energy Deal, opens on Tuesday, 8 August.
Energy Deal is a free to join scheme, which gives residents the chance to make savings on their energy bills by registering to take part. A one day reverse auction will then be held on 10 October, where suppliers compete with their best offers. The winning suppliers send registrants their personalised offer for consideration. There is no obligation to switch. Sign up and see if you can save.
In 2016, the total sum of savings for Dover District residents was £47,351.32. Figures after the recent May auction showed Dual Fuel customers who registered/ switched could save an average of over £150 on their annual energy bills.
A recent survey, undertaken by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy shows that 48% of respondents have never switched, and only 17% had switched in the last year, (see latest survey).
Customers on a fixed tariff are urged to check their fixed tariff end date, as once this ends they will be moved to a standard tariff. If your fixed deal is coming to an end shortly, you will usually be able to switch without penalty during the last 42-49 days of a fixed tariff, check with your supplier as this varies.
To register or find out more, see the energy advice pages or see www.energydealswitch.com. Dover District residents without internet access can contact 01304 872428 to register. You will need to have your latest energy bill to hand, as you will need the details during the registration process. To take part in this round of Energy Deal you will need to register by Monday 9 October 2017.
