All those energy comparison sites assume that when your fixed deal ends …All those energy comparison sites assume that when your fixed deal ends you will end up on standard variable for the rest of the period and therefore they fool you saying that you will save hundreds if you switch (unless you are on standard var in the first place which is unlikely). We know they raise prices every year so why would you think they offer you a better tarrif? I'm on npower and they have theirs calculator which also claims I'll save 60 if I switch to a new fixed deal, but my calculator tells me I'll be 25 worse off. Other providers would have saved me a tenner if switched so pointless.It's all a con.


I used the Martin Lewis Energy Club in 2016 and got a cracking deal for my parents and I for a years fixed. When it was due to end I did the comparison again and the quote they gave for my parents was actually more expensive even with cash back than what was available when I went on their current suppliers website for a quote. What I’m saying is no one should assume they are getting the best deal and you should search each provider individually. Yes it’s more time consuming but if you can save it’s worth it.
What's next car insurance mega thread?
You are sposed to compare the price per unit and then move only if it is worth it, not look at their annual assumptions because that's where you go wrong.
Over the last few years I've found that switching energy suppliers at this time of year is a bad move. Tariffs tend to be significantly cheaper between May and August; which is when their is a glut of cheap gas available to suppliers. As stated above I also use MSE Cheap Energy Club for comparisons.

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.

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.

They stopped the free weekend electric now as its reached its target so when I asked they said no but you will stay on it but I do get 16 days free electric when they decide to give it me as it can take upto 12 months and its only free 9am to 5pm I was told so they work out what you use in the 12 months waiting to calculate and then credit for that amount.



Terms on site -11. Your average daily electricity usage is calculated over a period of 6 months if you are a credit customer and over a period of 12 months if you are a

prepayment customer. To calculate the amount of credit you receive for your electricity usage between 9am-5pm per day, we apply a percentage of

35% to your average daily electricity usage and use the unit rate of your current tariff at the time that the credit is applied.

My interpretation was they work out average usage and give you a credit x16 in my case. Am I wrong as folk talking about turning the electricity up?


This is why I originally pointed out that the saving isnt that much. Hypothetical situation (very simplified):

Period of 10 days. Use 100kw/h on day 1, 0kw/h for the next 9 days.
Situation 1 you pay sod all as you claim day 1 free.
Situation 2 as is the case here you pay for 90kw/h and get 10kw/h free

Now expand that, 20 days on the same rule you get to pay for 95kw/h etc.

So the longer the period the less you actually get back and as this is over 6 months/12 months..... Well you see where i'm going with this. Tight arse BG ********.

First Utility is the worst company ever. Had dispute with them for over a year! Horrible customer service!
Be careful, First Utility allow you to make significant changes to your account just by an e-mail being opened.
This was confirmed by a member of staff when I queried why I have been on a contract for the last 4 years with them when I can only remember signing up for them in 2013!
My view was that it was too low a threshold to sign someone up for something that made such a big impact on someone financially and that errors could occur. e.g. child opening e-mail, phantom presses when in pocket etc.
I was refunded the £750 that the worse tariff had cost me but I feel that this is a practice that should be investigated further perhaps by Martin Lewis or the like as they insisted that OFGEM had signed off on this being an ethical way of signing customers up to energy contracts!

True, they were a bit harsh, but no doubt borne out of exasperation at the basic misunderstandings about electric heaters which always come up when they are advertised. The second posting really had to be challenged because it is patently untrue. Otherwise, people would spend more money on oil-filled radiators in the mistaken belief that they would cost less to run. It's a shame that so many people are ignorant about this and will be losing money as a result, in just the same way that the life skill of financial management is absent from so many - just look at the confusion in the recent thread about a regular savings account from Nationwide.

If it was 12,569 customers who had to switch to the lowest bidder by contract then maybe, but otherwise I doubt it. Though you've got nothing to lose by signing up I guess.

And in losing customers they would be losing hundreds of million if not billions a year. That is the only way to stop the greed.Maybe a twitter campaign where one gas supplier was chosen for everyone to join for a 12 month period. Then after 12 months a clear offer from the suppliers for the best rates and the one with the best rates gets the next 12 months. I think this could scare a lot of suppliers as 12 months of very low income would hurt them really badly.



Its good thinking, but this might not work. The trouble is they are not stupid. Say if 5-10 million did switched it EON or EDF or whichever they would see what was happening and eventually start to refuse customers. They would forsee their own fate and would see it as shooting themselves in the foot because eventually it would be their turn to be picked on.

The only real way is for the public to club together totally. Take back control and kick the rest to the ground. EDF was sold to the chinese for £5.8 billion, but how do raise £6 billion? or how do you start up an energy company? i think thats the only way forward.

It's in Lincolnshire and gets it's name from all the reclaimed land round there that I believe the Dutch pioneered.

"on mass"? Is there some advantage in choosing the heaviest energy company?
Why do they want my phone number - if they have my address and email then they can write.
Only reason they want phone is to pressure-sell.

I think getting E.ON rewards as Tesco points and then converting that into Reward Tokens is a good deal
5.5w (=35w) LED GU10 bulb - ASDA £2 each clearance, store specific?

Found a box of these bulbs on the end of an aisle at Worsborough Asda. Probably a store specific clearance line. Were £3 each apparently, now £2. Not a massive bargain in itself … Read more

It depends massively on the quality of the LED used in the lights. I have tried a number of lights before finally finding ones which were good enough to replace the GU10s in my kitchen.
I've never seen non-SMD (SMD=lots of LED emitters) with good light output that is the same length as halogen GU10...
Try one before committing to a lot of them!

Not voting either way, as doubt it is nationwide
Looks like a brilliant deal! Check the length - 5.5watt should be longer than normal GU10s and if so won't fit all GU10 fittings. If they're standard GU10 length their life will be shortened from the usual 50,000 hours to something more like 25/30,000 hours but at this price I wouldn't lose sleep over that. Also, true 'warm white' should be around 2700k but 'warm white' led GU10 replacements all tend to be 3000k. In my experience 3000k is on the cool side but again, not enough to lose sleep over given the dramatic energy saving.

I think you are mistaking these for the regular halogen bulbs... not LEDs
