Cut Energy Bills - Switch Together

Energy Deal - the collective switching campaign

Dartford Borough Council offers residents support in accessing cheaper energy tariffs by working with Ichoosr who run The Big Community Switch collective energy switching scheme.

Collective energy switching is when consumers get together to negotiate a group deal with gas and electricity suppliers.  Energy suppliers are invited to compete with their best offer at an energy auction.  Residents registered with the scheme are sent a personalised offer showing how much they could save with the winning tariff, which they can decided whether they want to accept.

Registration is free and there is no obligation to accept the winning offer.

The Big Community Switch groups together participating council area schemes countryside at energy auctions held three times a year in October, February and May.
