    Energy supplier renewal time.

    Looking for inspiration on the best dual fuel suppliers.

    I'm with EDF for electricity at present and British Gas for the obvious.

    I appreciate the costs are to rise across the board this year so looking for a good dual fuel supplier.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Brian...... aka BRGRSP.

    Then take your pick. But take this into consideration https://www.theguardian.com/business...as-prices-rise I can vouch for being with Yorkshire Energy was a pita when they went bust due to being moved to Scottish Power who were fecking useless at moving through the process. Not that you lose energy at all just you can be stuck on a tariff you don't want whilst it gets sorted out.

    No doubt some on here will have sign up codes for Octopus and Bulb that you can use if you want.

    I buy on price primarily and keep tabs on my KWH usage so I can get the best deal for my use pattern. Obviously greater the usage, the more significant the unit price is v daily charge.

    I do now pay some attention to customer service reviews after a very bad experience with Utility Point.

    I知 lazy and use

    Might not always be the cheapest but when I do check it is never far off and so much easier as everything is done for you. (There is some sort of referral fee if anyone uses that link)

    Currently with Green energy, previously Peoples Energy

    Just call your supplier tomorrow

    Ask them what your last 12,months usage I kWh has been

    Pop into money supermarket

    Pop your details into the energy comparison tool in kWh
    Press ente


    Boom - you値l see all the deals and how much it not you値l be better off

    THEN

    Pop onto Quidco and see if any of the firms that are competitive are offering a nice cashback bribe for signing up

    Job done


    Everybody has different usage patterns so pointless recommending g different firms as nobody uses the same energy amounts

    Customer service varies
    I知 with Scottish power and it痴 fab
    If they are any good in the comparisons I can refer you and we share 」200 in bill credit - loads of other people will be along offering their advice

    Also try snd get a one year or two year fix
    Be wary of leaving fees (norm only 」60 per fuel) but if your a twitchy switcher (I知 not) it痴 costly

    Good luck

    OVO have just suggested a renewal plan but prices quoted are way OTT compared to existing contract ... so I will be doing several comparison checks via various online energy co. comparators ... they always come up with a better deal(s) ... BUT .. OVO likely offer better deals to new customers ie better deals than they offer for renewals to existing customers. It's a merry go round.

    I think you can switch out of a fixed deal something like 50 days before it expires.

    Switchcraft

    Hi

    I use Switchcraft and let them just get on with it - monitoring, changing over as the deals run-out, kept informed as progresses.
    With Switchcraft for several years with a substantial saving over B-Gas (Gaz & Lecky).

    Minor hiccup this year as a supplier wnet under and B-Gas took over temporarily before new supplier.

    I want to change, only joined BG recently. Happy with the tariff but they have installed a smart meter as part of it.

    Not against the idea & like the convenience.

    Fitter said 組as might take 30 mins to register, clearly a lie after googling this after 24hrs and no appearance.

    A whopping 4 days from install and the meter can no longer connect to the electricity now despite sitting the other side of the external part of the smart meter.

    Shart meter more like it.

    BG customer services are awful.

    I have an octopus code if you want one, I find the customer service excellent. Scottish Power were also decent.

    Do you not watch the news? There are no deals due to the current energy prices. Those sites will have no energy company paying them to transfer customers. Any fixed deal will be well above the energy cap so you may as well be on a variable tariff as the cap is below the actual cost of energy.

    Martin Lewis on the radio the other day said there are 2 choices if you're on a variable; a) fix it at c.10% above the cap and hope that when the cap lifts in April that variable prices exceed what you fixed at or b) stay on the variable and hope that prices go down so in April they don't exceed what you could have fixed at now. I'm in the same boat at the moment.
