Let's compare energy

It’s always good to see what’s available on the energy market. So, if you’re thinking about switching energy providers or are simply doing a spot of ‘window shopping’ then we are here to help.

With our compare service you can find prices across a host of different energy providers with information that’s easy to understand. So you’ll get no unnecessary jargon.

Why should I switch?

If you’ve paid attention to your energy bill over the years you may well have noticed that energy costs fluctuate regularly. So if you’ve been with your current energy provider for a while, it’s possible there’s a cheaper alternative out there. Even if you have only recently set up an energy account, it’s worth seeing what’s available on the energy market. Switching can be the quickest and often simplest way to save on energy prices.

Variable versus fixed-rate tariffs

When it comes to paying for your gas and/or electricity you’ve got two options. Which one you choose is up to you.

Fixed-rate energy plan

As you might have guessed from the title this kind of tariff means your energy prices stay the same for a set amount of time, usually one year. So, if your energy provider suddenly announces they’re going to raise their rates, yours will remain unaffected, at least for the duration of your plan. Of course, if there was a sudden decrease in prices you wouldn’t see the positive effects of this either.

Variable-rate energy plan

Unlike a fixed rate energy plan a variable-rate energy plan can go up and down in price. You don’t get the peace of mind that comes with knowing exactly what you’ll be paying for the duration of your plan, but on the plus side, variable-rate energy plans are often the cheapest on the market. What you’ve got to decide is whether you’re happy paying less now and, possibly, more a little later on.
