Want to save money on your household energy bills?  Sign up today to find out how much you could save!

Working with iChoosr, we combine the purchasing power of thousands of households. Energy suppliers compete for your custom, often with bespoke and market leading tariffs not available direct or via price comparison services.

It is easy and with no obligation


Signing up online along with thousands of others is simple and there is no obligation. Together you form a large group and iChoosr holds an auction on behalf of the group. After the auction you decide whether to accept the offer from the winning supplier. iChoosr arranges everything for you.

How does the scheme work?

4: You decide

There is no obligation to accept and there are no fees or charges if you don’t switch. You simply get a new offer that could potentially save you money on your energy bills. In addition we can help you with any queries.

5: Switching

If you accept the offer, your contact information will be sent to the winning supplier. iChoosr takes care of the whole switching process and checks if the supplier does what it has promised. If you decide to decline the offer, then we'll end your participation. Free of charge, of course.
