Compare and Save on Gas & Electricity

How Much Could You Save on Your Gas and Electricity Bills?

There are many ways you can go about saving on energy, some with more impact than others. In general, the biggest impact on your bills will come from two things – which tariff you are on (and if it’s a good deal or a money drain), and your usage.

Getting a great deal on a tariff can be an easy & really effective way to lower bills – it’s fast & simple, and means that you could enjoy bills that are about 25% cheaper year after year.

How do you get the cheapest energy bill possible?

It’s pretty simple – here are a few top tips that could get you much cheaper energy bills.

  • Switching energy could lower your bill by £100s a year. Energy regulator Ofgem says this alone could save you £300. All you have to do is provide some basic details, like your postcode.
  • Save with an online-only “paperless” tariff: The cheapest rates are “internet-only” which means they are only available online and you’ll be emailed your bill, rather than receiving it in the post.
  • Pay by Direct Debit: Suppliers often give you a discount for direct debit payments.
  • Look at tips to lower your usage – some are so easy, you may not even notice the difference.
