Switching supplier or tariff
Don't pay more than you need to, we can help you switch.
One of our key aims is to help residents of Plymouth to save money; so, we are helping people to switch to cheaper tariffs for their gas and electricity. If you’re one of the many people across the country that have never changed energy tariff or supplier, the chances are you’re paying more for your energy bills than you need to. You could save over £200. If you have switched before, it’s worth checking again, you can usually save too.
Energy companies provide a range of tariffs and there are many new energy suppliers in the market – it can all seem very confusing. However, switching to a different energy tariff or even a different supplier doesn’t need to be complicated, with most of the work being done for you. Spending just a few minutes of your time could help you save tens, if not hundreds, of pounds a year on your gas or electricity bills.
It’s not all about the money; it may matter to you how the energy you use is generated. 100% or partial renewable tariffs are becoming more affordable, we can also show you these options.
Quick switching tips
Here are some of our tips to help you save money this year:
- Just because you pay for your energy via a key or card meter, it doesn’t mean that you can’t save money too. There are deals for key or card meter customers.
- Don’t be afraid of suppliers you haven’t heard of before. They are all regulated by Ofgem, you can see where each company ranks on the UK’s 2019 customer satisfaction survey here. They may be less known because they don’t spend as much on advertising.
- Pay by direct debit. Yes, it means that the energy company will receive your money without your explicit sign-off each month, but is it really worth spending an extra £80 a year for the privilege of being able to withhold payment?
- Go paperless. You could save around an extra £10 a year if you opt to receive electronic bills rather than paper ones. Do your bit for the environment whilst saving a bit extra too.
