Compare energy tariffs

Over 15 million households in the UK are currently on a default or standard variable tariff. Energy price caps are in place for these types of tariffs, however as the price cap doesn't protect you from price fluctuations it might end up a more expensive option.

It's always best to consider a fixed rate plan to secure the price you pay and the best way to make big savings to your energy bills is to compare energy suppliers.

Compare gas, electricity and dual fuel

There are several options available to you when selecting your energy tariffs. You can look at separate electricity or gas tariffs or combine the two with a dual fuel tariff.

A dual fuel tariff is where you would purchase both electricity and gas from the same supplier. This can be both convenient and a money saving option with many providers offering discounts. However, you can still save on individual deals separately so we would always recommend running a price comparison first.

Other reasons to compare energy suppliers

Price is the biggest reason when it comes to finding a new energy supplier with most people looking to reduce their energy bills. However, prices and tariffs can fluctuate dependent on requirements, and with an ever-changing number of energy suppliers in the domestic energy market, there's a lot on offer.

The best deal for some will mean a high level of customer service, a focus on environmental output, or need specific tariffs - such as fixed deals or those with no exit fee.

The key to finding the best energy deal for you is to compare a range of energy suppliers and tariffs. Our service makes it easy to do just that, so you can make an informed decision about which energy supplier to choose.

At The Energy Shop, we can guide you through exactly how to switch supplier and get the best rate all in a matter of minutes.

We do this by running a price comparison comparing tariffs from all of the UK's energy suppliers and showing all deals that meet your criteria for your area. To get started with the comparison, we will request some information about your location, current energy deal and usage. You can find all these details in your latest bill.

Once you have found the supplier and deal you wish to move to and confirmed the contract and payment method, your new supplier will contact you with a switching date. Ofgem has protocols in place to ensure switching is completed within 21 days if the supplier is part of the Energy Switch Guarantee. The average turnaround for switching supplier is around 17 days.

If you change your mind, you have 14 days to cancel from agreement.

No, don't cancel your direct debits. This will be handled between the energy companies.

There's no hard and fast rule of when to switch energy suppliers. However if it's been a while since you last switched or you haven't switched energy supplier before, we would highly recommend comparing prices today. Other times it would be useful to think about switching is:

  • When you're coming to the end of a fixed term deal
  • If you suspect prices are about to rise - watch out for reports in the news of increases
  • When you move to a new home - you may need to find out who your current energy suppliers are
  • When your circumstances change e.g. charging a new electric car

You don't need to be in credit to switch energy supplier, however there are different regulations based on the amount of debt you have and the type of tariff you currently use as to whether you can switch immediately or not. Rules are different again if you are in debt but use a prepayment meter.

If you're failing to pay your energy bills there are a number of steps you can take to avoid any disruption with your supply, and to help you repay what you owe.

Whether you can switch energy supplier whilst in rented accommodation will depend on who is named on the energy bills and who is responsible for paying them.

If the bills are in your name and you are making payments then you can change supplier as you wish. If the bills are in the name of the property owner, landlord, or an appointed agent, it is a decision they will need to make. If you are in this situation we would still recommend discussing with the relevant party.
