In addition to discounts, some suppliers also offer other incentives to new customers, such as welcome credit or vouchers, so it’s worth taking time to compare prices and plan features.

How to choose an energy supplier and switch

The best way to choose a new energy supplier and deal is to carry out an energy price comparison.

To compare deals, all you need is a recent energy bill and to answer a few quick questions about your current supply.

You’ll get the most accurate results if you enter your actual energy consumption (which you can find on your bills), but if you don’t have this, use the national averages to discover how much you could save.
