are still paying around £300 a year more than they really need to be paying. Regular energy switchers are saving around £200 when they switch supplier, but consumers who don’t normally switch supplier are more likely to save in the region of £300 when they switch to a cheaper online tariff.
It’s good to see there was an increase in consumers switching to these cheaper tariffs during 2015. In fact, there were 6 million more consumers switched supplier than the previous year.
There are a few new suppliers who may cause some problems through their learning curve. You can avoid this by not choosing the cheapest tariff. I would go with one of the following suppliers cheapest online tariff.
If you see your existing suppliers name here, it does not mean their cheapest tariff will be available to you. Just choose whichever one you see available on the comparison site. The Government Accredited sites are listed below. These are approved by Ofgem.
