Purchasing energy together is much cheaper 

If we purchase energy collectively you will get a better deal. That’s why Barking and Dagenham Council has organised another collective switching scheme for energy.

Switching collectively is easy and safe 

The council negotiates on your behalf and ensures a safe switch if you accept the offer.

How does it work? 

  • You sign up with no obligation and we will inform you about the auction date.
  • If you share your annual consumption details then we can make you an offer suited to your specific situation.
  • In the week after the auction you will receive a personal offer by email and you have a few weeks to decide whether you wish to accept the offer.

How do we get a good deal? 

  • The more people sign up, the greater our purchasing power.
  • Energy suppliers compete to make the best offer in the auction.
  • They determine their bid based on the number of participants.
  • The supplier with the best tariff wins the auction.
