Just wanted to point out that these comparison sites are all well and good, but these large figures they quote you saving are often compared to your supplier's base rate that you'd be switched to once your tariff expires. In reality, you should be comparing the standing charge + kWh rates to your current tariff to see if you actually will save anything.
Just started switch from eon to edf. Currently pay eon £89 per month ends in 2 weeks. Eon wanted £117 per month. Edf fix 1 year £94 per month. No brainer. Shame eon would not sharpen their pencil.
WHY DONT PEOPLE (a village/community/district? ) get a gas powered generator to supply their own electricity ... not only that if you keep it running you could get a feed-in tariff from your supplier. Gas is so much cheaper as an energy source than electric .. even if you lose about 50% in conversion you're still quids in, gas about 3p kwh leccy about 14p kwh ,, hoi ! peter jones I've got an idea ,,,,, ?
Here - https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/utilities/you-switch-gas-electricity/ I recently switched from Eon to Pure Planet - a new online only suppler It has only one tariff - Gas Standing charge £8.50/month 2.594p/kWh Electric Standing charge £8.50/month 11.897p/kWh (no economy 7 rate) Dual Fuel discount £30/year Exit fee = Zero all prices include VAT EoN just couldn't match anything like this. Switching took 10 days and I reckon I'll save about 25% against EoN standard rates.
I'm currently tied in to Eon until Feb 19. Just done a quick comparison and the Prime Saver tariff is 450 a year more expensive (shock)
