The summary can give you an indication of who the cheapest energy supplier is, but to get a more accurate comparison of prices, you need to use our gas and electricity comparison tool based on your own energy usage.

How do you choose the right gas & electricity tariff?

The right dual fuel deal for you will depend on the size of your household and your energy consumption.

If you live in a household that uses a lot of gas and electricity, the plan with the biggest discount will probably work best for you because a heavily discounted rate will make a huge difference to your bills.

However, if you have a small household with a lower-than-average consumption, you may find that opting for a plan that offers cashback or other bonuses up-front is more valuable for you.
