June 29th Market Comparison
There is no doubt energy suppliers have been busy increasing their tariffs and removing many of the best deals on the market.
We share our commission with you, so all tariffs available from our switching site have an additional £10 per fuel switched as cashback. This is paid about 90 days after your switch goes live.
Fix your tariff
We recommend that you choose a fixed tariff as we do not trust energy suppliers to keep their tariffs low for people on a variable tariff.
All the big suppliers have increased their variable tariffs this year.
If you are someone who forgets to switch their tariff at the end of the term, then you can choose a longer term fix. (see Recommeded tariffs)
Pay by Direct debit
Paying by direct debit is usually about £100 per year cheaper. If at all possible this is the best option for getting a cheaper deal
Customer service is important, It used to be the case that small suppliers were good and most of the big suppliers were awful. Things are not so simple anymore.
We have had good reports on all the recommendations below:
The best tariff for you depends on which of the 14 supply regions you live in and what your energy usage is.
Cheap 12 month fixed deals
Together Energy Fixed April 19 (Fixed for 12 months, no warm home discount)
Utility Point Switch Up 18 (Fixed for 15 months, no warm home discount)
SSE Collective 1 year fixed ((Fixed for 12 months, has warm home discount – this is the best available deal for people who get a warm home discount)
Green Plans and Longer Fixed periods
These are all more expensive than Together energy and Utility Point but usually cheaper than SSE
