Energy tariffs and switching suppliers

There are many types of tariffs available to support different needs and circumstances. Most suppliers offer many different tariffs for gas and electricity, along with discounts for managing accounts online or choosing a 'dual fuel' deal.

Once a year, your energy supplier should tell you which tariff they have is the cheapest for you. This usually comes with the annual statement - this gives you information about your usage and a prediction for the next year’s usage and costs.

Switching energy suppliers could save you money and can be simple to do. Comparing energy tariffs and deals regularly can help you make sure that you are getting the best gas or electricity tariff for your usage, as well as the best service offer. Comparing deals could also help you cut your bills by switching supplier. Comparisons can be made by either ringing or visiting the comparison websites.
