Register for the next energy auction

View the results of the most recent energy auction which took place on 12 February 2019.

Residents who switched energy supplier from the February 2019 energy auction received an offer for a £145 average annual saving on their energy bill.

The current auction is now open for registration. The next energy auction will take place on 21 May. Register by 20 May to participate.

You can register via the two method below:

  • complete the easy to use online form
  • call the office on 0800 508 8364.

In order to register, you will need to have the following information:

  • current gas and/or electricity provider
  • tariff name for gas and/or electricity
  • current payment method, e.g. monthly direct debit, pre-payment meter etc
  • how much gas and/or electricity you use, in pounds or kWh, preferably from an annual statement.

The above information can usually be found on a recent bill or an end-of-year statement. If you are unable to find the required information, you can contact your current supplier and they will be able to provide it to you. It is very important to have this information so that the system can generate an accurate and personalised offer.

Residents who register for the scheme will start receiving personalised offer letters shortly after 3 June and will have until 2 July to accept the offer.

For online registrations, a personalised email offer will be sent, please make sure to check the spam folder if you haven't received the email.
