Southern Electric
Gas 5.49p Standing charge 27.41p
Electricity 17.17p Standing charge 27.41p

Annual usage Gas 13500, Electricity 3200

Total cost 741 + 549 = 1290

Npower

Gas 3.88p Standing charge 10.35p
Electricity 13.22p Standing charge 12.76p

Annual usage Gas 13500, Electricity 3200

Total cost 523 + 423 = £846

These are my approximate calculation. It is same for British Gas as well they are also same as southern electric.

I'm with Flow Energy and find them very reasonable and good customer service, on the phone and by Email.

I am with Npower and had a massive go at them. They changed our dual fuel direct debit from 54 to 39 a month back in july..... Strange but okay. Then in december just decided to up it to £112??? I called them up and they said our yearly spend was about 650? And somehow they equated that to be acceptable to put our direct debit up so we would pay over double that over 12 months?!?! WTF. Keep an eye on them is all i would say..

Npower are a bunch of jokers, had massive issues with them - recently moved house and had problems with British Gas too.. So it's a bit of pot luck I think. With edf now, and so far so good....

Sadly we're in a rented property with a pre-pay meter so get done over by all the energy companies :(

Still you should be able to change providers and save monthly £40.

But you don't have to use NPower to save, they are the worst of the worst.

Try OVO, fantastic service, cheapest for me.

Absolutely no chance of saving £40 a month on a pre payment meter, best we could get was an approximate saving of £35 for the year and that was trying literally every energy company we could find. Sadly pre payment meters have a ridiculous tariff attached, I would happily move to direct debits but as we're renting we aren't allowed to change the meter.

been with swalec forever, they always seem to be the cheapest, they automatically put you on price freezes etc, no complaints here.

I've been with Npower for years and not had any problems with them. They have just updated their website and systems and I must say it is a much improved service overall.

I manage all mine online, I had recently just ended a fixed deal and moved to another one (with no ties) I used the MSE Cheap Energy Club to do a comparison and turned out Npower had launched another lower tariff in the meantime, so a couple of months later I have now switched again with them and am saving an extra £200 a year.

Even if you are with someone who you think gives a low price at the time you sign up, I would always recommend trying to get a no tie product, use the MSE Cheap Energy club at least once a quarter to see if there is something better out there or even with your own provider.

We're on SSE at the minute, today have gone through USwitch and finally decided on ebico as the standing charge with SSE is just too much. Wish we'd done it sooner as we paid far too much for gas in the summer months with standing charges.

Had this discussion in ask a while back in no way can your landlord make you have a prepay meter

I have no real idea if I am overpaying. I live in a private rental with a prepay meter. It drops in 18p increments. Is that... good? :{

Npower are awful. I've worked in the billing side of another supplier..and I couldn't make sense of Npower bills.

The meter isn't even in the flat its in the hall cupboard so I don't see it being an issue to change over, should really ask about getting it switched over. I thought if the landlord wanted to keep pre-pay there was no legal obligation for them to change it though.

You will be paying more on a prepay meter
only reason to keep one is if it helps you manage your bills

Not a %100 sure but no I don't think they can insist
always get permission first mind
