Just discovered this - if your gas&electric is with powergen, you can save an extra 5% by just phoning them up and asking to be put on 'energy online winter saver'. This has an extra 5% discount compared to their energy online prices. Even better as it's a free phone number :-D

0800 015 1712 between 8.00am and 8.00pm Monday to Friday (8.00am and 4.00pm on Saturday).

Traffif details:

I'm with Powergen dual fuel and EnergyOnline. If they don't do the upgrade to 'winter saver' automatically I'm going to be very annoyed.

Hi, Excellent find. Just rang Powergen on the 0800 number given and they're changing my tafiff. Any savings that can be made on gas and electric are a bonus IMHO with the way that bills have increased :thumbsup:.

Voted hot.

I was with Powergen until a few months ago. After switching around for a while (:)) I think Powergen is the best in many ways..

Hi, Think that Powergen amongst other energy providers expect their customers to ring them and ask for the best possible deals on tariffs otherwise they're happy to continue charging customers standard rates. I'd understood that I was on a dual-fuel tariff but wasn't. Powergen in fairness were quite helpful over the phone and changed tafiff there and then.

HTH.

Hi Edi, I'd switched from Powergen to Npower and, what a nightmare changing gas and electric was. Web-sites that do the switching of providers for you do not advise how many months transferring accounts and what a complete and utter headache paperwork, submitting readings over and over again are. Decided to go back to Powergen because I was completely and utterly fed up with all of the paperwork going back and forth. Not necessarily the cheapest however their customer service has always been good in fairness to them.

Kind Regards.

I switched to Npower about a year ago and can't remember it being that much of a hassle, maybe had to give a couple of readings but I just let them phone me and i did it then. Just realised that I'm about £100 in credit on my account so in effect I've already paid for this winters fuel!

bit confused.......if you go into both links for the prices one says 16% and one says 11% discount, it says discount is already taken from prices shown, but the prices shown are identical:?

Ignore the bit about the discount already being taken - energylinx is one of those price comparison sites, and if you'd entered all your details and go through the proper route in the site it would have shown you the total price you'd pay per year including the discount.

The unit prices shown are before the discount is taken off.

btw: powergen WILL NOT automatically move you to this tariff, nor will they even tell you it exists, unless you ask them!

The phone call to switch takes about 60 seconds, and is likely to save you well over 100 quid in the period the discount is guaranteed for (ends Jan 2008 ).

The links in my first post don't seem to work - tells try again:

new tariff with the 16% discount:

energy online, which is what I'd expect anyone here reading to currently be on:

I've just recently switched from British Gas to Powergen.
I used uswitch.com, and by doing so i am going to receive a bottle of champagne worth £20,
uswitch reckon i'll save around £200 per year by going with powergen,
I went with the online duel fuel with direct debit for extra savings.

I believe so, yes, as you have to be on 'onebill' which you can only be on if you have two bills to start with :)
Stu#16
You can get a nice cashback with quidco for switching to.
vman#17
thx for the energy comparison online link, looks like i can save £150 on my gas just by switching tarrifs with British gas, nice
donkeydavid#18
Excellent, will ring then tomorrow. I have my gas/electricity capped with them ,should make no difference should it, if I change to "energy online winter saver"
qprfan#19
excellent post, just switched from dual fuel to 'online winter saver'. They confirmed my extra discount is now 16% overall. As i pay £100 per month for gas and electric, this is a brilliant saving. Thanks.
donkeydavid#20
[SIZE=2]Rang them up, will save nearly a £100 a year, but will not be able to keep my prices capped. So not gonna go for it, but thanks anyhow OP.[/SIZE]
