Atlantic Fixed Price 3 tariff

Martins’ expert energy review

For: Fixed price tariff – Parent company SSE voted no.1 for customer satisfaction – Largest producer of renewable energy in UK

Against: 8.33% of the discount comes as a free month after 12 months customer loyalty ( Not too concerned about this though )

What would I do: This is the one to go for if you are looking for a fixed price tariff. Bear in mind that EDF  have not as yet, at the time of this post, increased Their prices. It is inevitable that they will have a price increase soon.

Martin suggest’s: Get an accurate quote for this tariff by visiting one of the Consumer Focus accredited comparison sites. You will find a list of these in the right hand column

Further information: If you are looking for the Kwh unit rate for this deal, visit one of the comparison sites. You will then get access to the kwh unit price after you enter your postcode, and your current tariff details!

      Hi Colin
      Thanks for your comment
      Sorry you think I got it wrong!
      Your price is fixed for 12 months with this tariff from the time you went live it. (Your price won’t increase until you have been with them for 12 months)

      Atlantic prices are increasing along with all the Scottish & Southern Energy prices.

      All suppliers are increasing their prices.

      I would say you have done ok Colin!

      Speak with me again when your tariff comes to an end. I will advise you what I would do under your circumstances.

      Kind regards

      Martin
