hi, we have our annual renewal approaching next month, currently with E.On on a fixed v19 plan. It shows a massive price increase to stick with them on their current v21 plan, and a quick search indicates price rises all round. We used 3912Kwh, and would jump fro m£38 to £48 per month, but i dont recall seeing any news about such large increases, does anyone know how to get this cheaper? the previous year the price dropped when going from one plan to the next.

welcome to brexit more price rises to come try more comparison sites like energylinx mse etc. search both fuels separately and as duel fuel and compare what ever is cheapest if u are eligible for warm home scheme then see if any suppliers whom are part of it are going be cheaper than the cheapest or not and remember they sometimes move there criteria or don't do it it's not guaranteed for all.

thanks,
I also note that they offer compared plans based against the projected costs, so i can switch and have savings of £50 per year+, then look into the details and thats based on my current plan ending in Feb and me going on to standard rates. nothings simple is it. :)

Never heard of them - any advice?

hi I'm just leaving eon after 8 years and going to CO OP. The v19 was a massively discounted tariff at the time I think my bill dropped around £40 a month from the previous year which is why no one can come close this year including Eon themselves.

Coop was the cheapest for my house too but I went for First Utility as I "should" be getting £60 Amazon vouchers with the plan I chose, so there wasn't much in it. (Though how that works I'm not sure as I can no longer find that tariff on their website!!)

It's a pain having to switch and I really liked Eon rewards too, but they're just too expensive now!!

I've just switched to them--well, they take over on the 6th. There's no exit fee so figured it's worth a go til something better comes up

I'm assuming the increased productivity in the UK since the Brexit vote is absolutely nowt to do with Brexit, though? As that's a positive...... :p

I'd recommend AVRO energy cheaper than everyone for me in Nottingham. I pay 50 a month for electric and gas

Brexit has made anything which is imported costlier by 15-20%. I hope people understand that most of our energy is imported so that has caused a sudden increase in wholesale prices causing some low-priced providers to go out of business.

Yes it has the fall in the pound will have helped overseas sales. it may have helped productivity for a short term workers will not really have had extra income a few may have had a slightly more overtime apart from the companies selling more stuff they wouldn't have actually made much more if the overall prices go up 15/20 percent in imports and locally they are trying keep them down they wont put them up by the same amout or the sales will drop again. also when workers are getting paid the same wages regardless of the increases all around.

check robinhood energy, on economy 7 the best deal i have is from them
#22
ok il have a look at that one. haven't found any currentlly cheaper for me than daligas v16 for gas and electricity is with extra energy. but am thinking of leave them as energlin haven't paid up on cashback if I can find a cheaper know so they don't cash in on it aswell even though it will cost me 30 quid in fees to change.

We have flats with economy 7 storage heaters. The properties have been wired for economy 7 set up where the storage heaters are wired to the economy 7 meter off peak electrics, which only becomes live during the economy 7 off peak cycle.

I therefore doubt you would be able to use economy 7 if you don't have this set electrical arrangement set up. However, I am not an electrician so I may be wrong.

I've just switched my electric over to SSE and we use similar amount of kWh to you. Leaving Extra Energy for them.
