Found 10th Jan
Don't mean to sound smug but I have a Victorian 3 bed house with high ceilings and draughty sash Windows. I've managed to run the house (electricity and gas) for just under £500 this year with flow energy and am now due a whopping rebate. I had an email from mse cheap energy club and switched last year. Really glad I did. The customer service has been amazing too .

Please note I don't work for the company, I'm just super impressed I've found such a reasonable fuel company.

£500 a year you must have nothing switched on haha

So what rate are you on? Gas and elec? How much energy did you use? Exit fees?

Thanks for posting this. I'm currently looking for a new provider after Eon renewal is a lot more than I'm currently paying!

I'm not at home atm - what is the standing charge and charge/unit etc that you are paying for gas and electricity?


I am also a very happy Flow customer but pay about double that! A bit cheaper than the big boys but refreshingly efficient after a torrid time with Scottish Power.

Try Daligas for gas and Robin Hood Energy for electricity. MSE cheap energy club couldn't beat this combo.

Just did the calculation on site.

For dual fuel fixed tarriff I will save £38 a year. £30 exit fee.

Im with Brittish Gas so expected a bigger saving.

Disapointing

Pay £400 a year myself

Why do we still have standing charge or line rental in this say and age

Robin hood is £100 higher for me each year

I think what OP means is that she saved £500 off her last supplier.. looks like OP pays £99 per month. (presumably as per old supplier) but this year with Flow has a £500 credit.

I myself live in an old victorian house.. my bill is £300 a month in winter.. oO

I set up my direct debit to be the same as when I was with BG. £99 a month. I have not changed my usage and have got over £500 due back to me from the last year

Mai thing is, how much pence per kw

I use ovo for my main home but in london, i find they are not as cheap. I find that energy providers can charge different tariff depending where you are in the country so always best to do a comparison on the comparison website for your own address.

I've had Flow energy in the past and the experience was really good .

Dont need any title mate, and definately not lord

I'm with flow, have been for last few years, when I switched set my tarrif to same as old supplier and just had a rebate for £600, customer service department is very good too, no queues and always very helpful and friendly

I find that energy tariff can also differ for post codes even in london so where one provider will be cheaper for one property, their tariff may be more expensive for another. I think i may have looked at flow for my main home against ovo energy and ovo came out cheaper. But i was told flow was also very good. I certainly found ovo to be very good and they pay you 3% interest on any credit you have.

I have built up about 2k of credit with them which i am happy to leave with them as a savings account. Lol X)

a lot of people are in for a shock when their current deal runs out, ours are up at the end of March and the price increase is amazing.

The thing with utilities is Flow might be cheap for one post code and lots more expensive for another, was with them for 2 years and they then they were much more expensive but as said that's the way they all work. Make sure you look outside of the dual fuel prices big discounts to be had over dual prices quite often.

why would you not, especially now when its so easy, I don't like paying hundreds of pounds for a service I can get so much cheaper.

Id get that into a bank account.
If they were to go bust you'd probably lose it.

I know. I am aware of this but i am prepared to take the risk for now. I may stop the credit when it reaches 5k.

Know what you want mate. I think that 3% interest isnt bad and i think the risk is low of them going bankrupt. Obviously, losing 5k is less worrying for me than for other people.

there ain't no such thing as one company is so cheap it's the tarriffs and depends on when and where u live and how u play ur cards I recon u could have saved even more if u didn't take both from 1 supplier.

Mines £49 a month, but recently its gone up to £78 due to winter with sainsburys energy. I wouldn't ever go back to Scottish power, eon or ever use British gas. Whats so special about flow energy? never heard of them...

​what did u expect u were with bg for maybe a long time I moved over a relative from bg after a lot of persuasion and they saved about 900 for gas and electricity about 400 but they do use a lot of gas between 25000 and 30000.i still get a problem persuading them to move suppliers after the fix or when I see a cheaper off they don't seem to understand that there's no such thing as a constantly cheap supplier.

Anyone with money looks after every little pound let alone £2k or £5k. Now either you are seriously silly or telling porkies.

​probably best change then if it's been a few years but prices are rising so do a comparison soon. remember check duel fuel tarriff then filter electric on its own and gas on its own also if anyone earns under 16k some supplier are part of warm home scheme with children u maybe able get that discount or for older people it's 140 per year

Are you saying that your getting 3% interest on your credit balance?

it's funny when people try compare price of direct debit prices. it's pointless e.g. would u be say impaying£ 50 per month for fuel for a car if and drive 100 miles a month. and someone who drives 5000 miles pays the same pointless everyone lives in differnt areas and uses differnet amounts.

Yes. I think this is pretty good return when you compare it with what you can get from the current savings rate.
