The Power Felt by Comparing Gas and Electricity Tariffs

Stress and worry before opening the latest correspondence from your gas and electricity
provider? Living afraid of a gigantic energy bill?
You don’t have to live like this!
There's no perk for loyalty when it comes to energy - it really does pay to shop around and
switch to the cheapest deal.
It's not only homeowners who can get involved in the energy switching movement either,
tenants can switch and save on their gas and electricity too.

Energy Tariff Types

  • There are many different tariff options for your gas and electricity needs:
    Standard variable tariff - This is the provider's default tariff, you'll be automatically
    moved to it when your tariff ends
  • Dual fuel tariff - A tariff for both your gas and electricity. You'll only have to deal with
    one supplier for both, although it's worth shopping around to see if any single fuel
    tariffs work out cheaper
  • Fixed rate tariff - Your tariff is fixed for a set duration, throughout this time it will not
    go up or down
  • Capped rate tariff - This enables the cost of your tariff to decrease and it won't be able
    to rise above a fixed amount
  • Green tariff - An environment-friendly option which can either be 100% renewable or
    a combination of renewable and non-renewable sources
  • Collective tariff - Enables people to group together to arrange a deal on their energy
    with the supplier.
  • Prepayment energy tariff - You'll have a prepaid meter in your home which can be
    topped up to maintain your gas and electricity.
    'Top 6’ Versus the Small Energy Suppliers
    Make sure you check out smaller energy suppliers too, it's worth taking a look at customer
    service reviews to see their history and how they deal with customers, in particular
    complaints.

Energy Tariffs Switch

You can switch your energy tariff in as little as three days and you don't have to pick up the
phone and talk to anyone!
Just switch online and your new supplier will sort it out for you, including contacting your
current energy provider, so no uncomfortable parting .
You'll experience no disturbance in your energy supply and should harmoniously be hooked
up to your new provider.
Remember that you have a 14-day cooling off period between completing your application
and the switching of your suppliers starting. If you're going to change your mind, this is when
to do it.
