As of 25/07/2014 this is currently the UK's cheapest fixed price energy tarrif.

I've just switched my self after finding them on the excellent Money saving expert price comparison "Energy Club" site: cheapenergyclub.moneysavingexpert.com/

Feel free to get a quote for your own usage.

Also Co-Op are TOP RATED (by the above site) supplier so that gives some additional confidence.

I've just saved around £80 by switching from my previous supplier based on a number of factors - one of which being I was on my old suppliers "standard tarrif". So if you've not done a price comparison recently get your existing annual usage from you your existing supplier, and then go on the price comparison site to see what savings .

£80 a month saving?? How big is your house?!

Good first post

Where is info about" limited to 10000 costumers"? Is this"fair and square energy tariff"?

Wonder what their customer services are like for existing customers eg is it a free phone number, is it UK call centre, do they actually answer the phone or keep you on hold forever a premium number.
Anyone know of a decent energy supplier with decent customer services?

I've worked out my saving is going to be £80 a month from my previous … I've worked out my saving is going to be £80 a month from my previous supplier, which is incredible.



I've done a search and I can't find any energy providers named incredible.

Uk based .... Freemium numbers rolled out first week of July across the group

Customers services ... Can't help you on that one .. Soon to switch to them though

OP: which tariff were you on your previous supplier? Standard? can you share the Elec+Gas prices and standing charge price? will see if this is a good deal or not...

I've worked out my saving is going to be £80 a month from my previous supplier, which is incredible....no way!!

I'm with EDF price promise and just received a message from them that this deal will save me £121 a year. A decision to change will depend on their t&c's.

My saving very similar to your twinkle I can't see prices going down however this doesn't look fixed so what's stopping them bumping it up once where locked in with a £50 cancellation charge £25 per fuel tempted but put off a little

I am with them been for a year now, so far good customer service

It is fixed until Sept 15
but the standing charge of just under 25p a day per fuel puts me off. We have solar panels so looking for a deal without standing charges but lower unit charge. Also they charge £30 per fuel early termination.

Only £30 saving per year, will stick with edf blue feb 16, no penalties with them. Whereas this is £25 a fuel.

It is fixed - until 30th September 2015, it's very clear on the linked page.

OP - are you sure that £80 saving isn't per year, rather than per month? That's much more likely as I saved £67 per year by switching to this, was told about it by my current supplier EDF - not sure how that business plan works!
Edited by: "errrr2" 22nd Jul 2014

I wonder if the web site told the op his monthly direct debit would be £80 a month...or do you pay actual usage per month with this plan?

I have just moved from cooperative energy to first utility as the standing charges and cost per kwh was cheaper with first utility. Surely that's what savings should be based on.
From what I've learnt over the years, you're promised you'll save a certain amount which means lower monthly direct debits initially, and then the company increases your bills because you're using more than you're paying. So now I look at actual costs of energy etc.

My elec is £120 per year, gas £170

So you will do really well with an £80 per month saving.

One definition of "incredible" is "difficult to believe"

Even if the OP had never changed supplier before, such a saving for a normal size house would be incredible.

The only scenario that I can think of that would give such a saving would be if their previous monthly payment had been too low to cover their usage and they were then paying a much higher monthly charge to catch up. In that scenario the savings are artificial though.

OP please give us a clue on how you achieved a 50% saving

Despite my criticism of the quoted inflated savings above, a quick comparison does show the Co-Op to be the cheapest deal that I can switch to once my current deal ends. BUT it is only about £ 50 per annum cheaper than the next best and still about £ 60 per annum more than I am paying now.

I've run my details through The Cheap Energy Club and it's estimating a saving of £153/year for the Co-Op which is probably worth the hassle of switching for.

I agree. I use the comparison web sites to screen out the "best" deals and then pop the actual cost data into my own spreadsheet. Some of the discount scenarios can get quite complicated to account for though.

One caveat on this account is "If you fail to provide two consecutive meter readings The Cooperative Energy may transfer you onto their standard variable rate tariff- this is £187 more expensive on average" so if you often ignore the reminder emails then this deal may not be for you.

'Some of the discount scenarios can get quite complicated to account for though'. I agree that's very true, ofgem are so full of bull and are on the side of the energy providers its a joke
If comparison sites showed you : cost per Kwh + standing charge and any discounts or exit costs applicable we would all be on the lowest price BUT NO WAY they want that

If in credit they can not up your d/d
also ask for your in credit amount back if you wish and they can not refuse.

Get off the standard and onto one of their fixed tariffs.

Yeah it defiantly this deal. They sent an email out early May saying that from august onwards it will be going up in line with expected usage.
I'm having solar panels and cladding fitted with the government green deal in 3 weeks.

I just switched to this deal. saves me a ton of money

why do people still have Standard tariff by default? Of course then when you use this websites you think you are saving loads of money when in the end your current supplier might have already a good deal on a fix tariff.... go figure. But this has changed recently as suppliers now need to inform customers of any better tariff in the market in customers bills for example: OFGEM requirement

I moved from EDF to Coop, not really any problems, apart from poor communication from Coop, and the process seemed to take ages.

Cheapest? I have just switched to Flow energy and the cheapest co-op tariff is £42 a year MORE expensive that what i am now on, I get the same fixed rate etc, plus unlike co-op i dont have to pay exit fees. So please shop around and do your sums people as claiming to be the UK's cheapest tariff clearly doesn't mean they are the cheapest!

The fair and square saves me £200, I am on EDF blue, but all the other tariffs cost me more.
