Electricity and Gas deal - Green Star Energy

Edited by:"Notis7"Found 20th Oct
I came across this offer and its probably the best I have seen when it comes to electricity consumption.

To apply, all you need is your current annual consumption for gas and



electricity in kilowatt-hours (kWh).

This information can be found on a



recent bill or statement of account from your current supplier.

They base your monthly bill on that - and then you can use as much as you want.

So basically it does away with the heating vs eating debate!

Yes but with this you can keep your heating on all day and night and your gas hobs on just for fun... And run a supercomputer. Or two!

Seems worth looking into so given heat. Thanks op

Seems too good to be true.

Anybody with this company? Gonna have to read the small print.

Surely there must be some small print limiting a % increase against your current use

Put it this way my tv works and my gas hob works and they take my money every month so I’m happy

This is not an unlimited tariff in the true sense, they expect you to use the same amount as the previous years consumption and then within reason, i.e a very cold winter they will not charge any extra if you were to use double, but should the weather be very similar and your usage was to double then next year you would either be charged double per month or they would move you to a pay as you go tariff. The tariff is mainly a safe guard against unexpected bills, not an opportunity to use large amounts of energy you would not normally use if you were pay as you go.

And their T&C clearly state they reserve the right to move you to another tariff. Looking at the negativity on their FB page, i think i will pass this opportunity.

Been grumbling to myself about the lack of energy deals on here
so great then you add this

'So basically it does away with the heating vs eating debate!'


cold as your heart mate

I ran the numbers and it said I wasn't eligible for the unlimited energy plan, but it didn't clarify whether it was because our usage was too high or too low to qualify. So I'm none the wiser.

Run a few cables to the neighbours and charge them half price?

Or run a fleet of electric cars as taxis

I have on this deal since last April and no problems at all. Iam having a house renovation and it worked well for me as the builders are leaving lights on all the time but I am not bothered. Probably I could save around £200 if I go with another company but happy to pay that for peace of mind

Damn was going to start a bitcoin farm....

I've been with Green Star for 2 years on a fixed rate tariff (dual fuel). No problems at all.

I've recently signed up with Across energy...due to switch on the 3rd of November. Hope they're okay! Was gonna go with Toto Energy (who were cheaper), but they really messed me around over the phone so I steered clear.

I've not heard of either of those companies!
Where did you find out about them??

I’ve been a Greenstar Energy customer for 3 or 4 years now and they are really good. Very happy with them, I’m not on this tariff though so can’t be specific. The company are great though.

I need to double check, as I was on the Unlimited Tariff but I think we've been moved off.

Our house is 3 bed semi and we have an electric car and a hot tube - so I wanted to be sure we wouldn't get caught by any surprising bills.

Now, I don't have an point of reference as to cost, as my previous property included utilities but it was only a two bed flat, but currently we pay £101 a month - that sounds reasonable to me - lights & heating on all the time, 3 tv's, 2 freezers, 2 dryers - going most days.

But I could be paying way too much.

MSE Cheap energy club. Google it and sign up, very handy.

Surely something for the advertising standards agency then? If unlimited isn't unlimited!

I nearly switched to them as they were the cheapest but 'Moneysavingexpert' advised people NOT to use them as there has been so many issues with customer sevices and problems with the switch over.
Not trying to put a downer on it just sharing what I've heard, hope you have better luck with them.

I think you misread what MSE said (because I also read it); it says they arent big enough to have an accurate rating AND dont use the MSE system to swap, so you would have to do it yourself

Filling in the the forms took about 5 minutes, almost exactly the same time as going through MSE's system..

You have to understand, MSE isnt unbiased, they get paid a LOT to promote the big guys; so create rules as an excuse not to list the smaller, cheaper providers; this never happened before the guy who created the website sold out about 18 months ago; the small guys were there right next to the big guys.
