Saving money on your bills

Last updated on: 09-Apr-2021

3. Saving on your gas and electric bills

If you want to save money on your energy bills then collective switching might be for you.

We can save you money on your energy bills by negotiating better deals with the energy companies on your behalf.  And what's more - the more households and businesses that take part, the better chance we have of securing you a competitive energy deal.

Gravesham Borough Council has offered Energy Deal since Collective energy switching began in the UK in 2013 partnering with iChoosr to help residents save money on their energy bills by using combined buying power to access highly competitive tariffs. Participation is completely free with no obligation to switch.

Energy Deal holds 3 auction rounds a year, Spring, Autumn and Winter (auctions May, October and February). Register for the auction round that most closes aligns to the end of your current fixed tariff.

How to take part

The next auction takes place on 6 October 2020.  Registration is open from 4 August until 5 October 2020.  You will require details of energy consumption (on energy bill/annual energy statement - preferably in kWh), name of current supplier and current tariff.  Once registered the closing date to take up offers is 16 November 2020.

For more information and to register use the following links:

I live outside Gravesham

Due to restrictions on the scheme the Council is not allowed to send out reminders to residents who have switched through the scheme in the past 2 years. Therefore please keep a note of your current tariff expiry date, and register for the auction that coincides with that date.

Three things you should do

  • Tell your neighbours about the scheme
  • Help your relatives if they are not used to registering their details online. (you can register on their behalf)
  • Help people without internet access to register with you online, or call on 01474 337326 during registration periods for assistance.

Alternative energy switching options are available through Ofgem accredited comparison sites.
