I only came here to find out how much it is per kwh for gas. I ended up switching my supplier and saved over £260.
I don't know why I didn't think to compare my energy prices before now. I could kick myself with the thought I could have been saving all this money over the past 10 years.
Thanks for all the information, it's been a very worthwhile visit to your website.
Very informative. I consider myself an inteligent person. What a fool am I? I have been paying the standard energy rates for years. But no longer, I may add. After reading this article, I went and did a comparison, I have now switched my supplier to npower and saved £489 over the year. I will no longer be resting on my laurels!
I thought i was going to be confused with this kwh thing when i was looking for the cheapest supplier by the kwh price. But after reading everything on this page, i found it very informative. I just used your comparison site to switch supplier. I seen what you mean about the discount on top of the kwh price. Many thanks for this
Thanks for this, I didn't realise there was such a difference from standard prices to internet prices. I ended up getting a quote and switching my supplier. It looks like I will save about £300
