The energy price cap, which affects those on standard variable tariffs, will be lowered to £1,568 from 1 July. This is a two-year low for energy prices, so it's a great time to fix your deal if you're on a standard variable tariff. Run an energy comparison to see deals currently available to you.

Important switching information

With wholesale energy prices falling, suppliers are starting to reintroduce fixed energy deals to the market. The market still remains unpredictable and it can be difficult to choose whether to fix energy or stick with a standard variable tariff. Run an energy comparison with us or keep up to date with energy market news to help you decide what to do.

You can also get switch-ready today by confirming your details so we can send you exclusive deals as soon as they're available. And when you've found the right deal we'll complete the switch for you.

How do I keep my energy costs down?

With the cost of living increasing, follow these handy tips to continue to stay in control of your energy bills:

  • Use the timer on your boiler so you’re only heating water and using the central heating when you’re in the house.
  • Keep an eye on your electricity usage by remembering to turn off lights or electrical items when they’re not in use.
  • Provide your supplier with accurate meter readings to make sure you’re only paying for the electricity and gas you’re using and avoid any surprises in future.
  • Insulate your home to reduce the amount of energy needed to keep your home warm.   
  • Keep a note of the end date if you’re on a fixed price tariff. Knowing when your fixed price deal is coming to an end can help you prepare for your costs going up.

How do I switch electricity supplier?

As a result of the increased cost of energy, there aren't many deals available at the moment. This means switching isn't an option for everyone.

In normal circumstances, switching suppliers with us is easy:

  • Get a quote and pick the deal that's best for you - whether that’s cheapest price, green tariff, a big six company or a small supplier.
  • We do all the work. Your chosen supplier sets up your new account and contacts your existing provider on your behalf. All you need to do is take a meter reading when instructed.
  • Switch takes place, it should take a maximum of 21 days. You can also change your mind and cancel within the 14 day cooling off period.

Why compare gas and electric?

Comparing energy suppliers makes sure you’re not overpaying for your energy. You can get both gas and electricity from the same company – known as a dual fuel tariff.

With the increases in living costs, no-one wants to overspend on their bills. Our comparison process makes it easy to find great deals on your energy tariff.

It takes less than 3 minutes to get a quote. You don’t even need your bill, though having it helps us get the most accurate energy quote.

We’ll show you exactly how much you can save by switching to each deal and make it easy by handling your switch for you.

Which is the best energy supplier for me?

There are a lot of energy suppliers out there, both big and small. The important thing to remember is that the gas and electricity they supply is exactly the same. Its just the price you pay for it that’s different.

Your decision comes down to what you want most from your supplier – is it the cheapest bills, proper green energy, great customer service or something else?

The large suppliers include

  • British Gas
  • EDF Energy
  • E.ON Next
  • ScottishPower
  • OVO

They each offer a range of tariffs to suit different customer requirements along with a standard variable tariff which is limited by the energy price cap.

Smaller energy suppliers will often offer the best deals but may rely on you managing your account online or through an app.

Newer to the market, they will sometimes only operate in certain areas of the country, or only offer a limited range of tariffs – such as green or renewable energy.

Ofgem regulates all energy companies. No matter the size of the energy supplier, they all have to follow the same rules.

Why should I switch energy supplier?

As well as comparing energy prices and the best deals, changing the type of tariff you have or the way in which you pay for your energy could also save you money.

Suppliers will often provide additional discounts to tariffs if you:

  • Opt for paperless billing and manage your account online
  • Pay monthly by Direct Debit
  • Switching both gas and electricity to the same supplier

But there are other reasons you may want to switch, such as:

  • Environmental awareness is increasingly important. Green energy tariffs are now offered by several companies. Some providers only offer 100% green energy deals, meaning all of the electricity comes from renewable sources.
  • Protection against future price rises is also valuable. Picking a fixed-price tariff means the rate you pay for your gas and electricity remain the same until the end of the fixed period.
  • Customer service may also be worthwhile considering. If you’ve been unhappy with the service you received from your current supplier, you may wish to switch to one with higher customer service standards.

Which energy tariff should I choose?

When deciding on an energy tariff, your first choice is normally whether you want a single-fuel or dual fuel tariff.

Dual fuel tariffs mean you get your gas and electricity from the same company. The energy supplier might give you a discount for doing this, especially if you pay by Direct Debit. Read more about dual fuel tariffs.

Alternatively, you can get a single-fuel gas-only tariff, or an electricity-only tariff or combine the two – you might find that the combined price saves you money – or you might only need one of them in your property.

Your gas/electricity or dual fuel tariff will be either variable rate or fixed rate:

  • Variable rate tariffs will go up or down depending on the price of oil and other factors. They may or may not have an exit fee.
  • Fixed rate tariffs tell you the price at the start, and how long the price will last for. If you leave a fixed rate tariff early, you may have to pay an exit fee.
