I had not heard of this. I am on a standard tariff paying Scottish Power every 3 months but apparently I can say £200 a year according to uswitch. Am completely new to this energy switching - just began looking into it - but need to do it ASAP so will have a look at this Martin Lewis club.

Use citizens advice its impartial and show more than the main comparison sites. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/consumer/energy/energy-supply/get-a-better-energy-deal/compare-gas-and-electricity-prices/

Save yourself all the hassle and bother and just switch all your home services to Utility Warehouse, to save the most money. One bill and loads of fantastic customer benefits, e.g. cashback on your shopping and free led light bulbs.

MiniMissyMoo

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.

Lets turn this on its head. Have you got any proof that light therapy does not work and is of zero benefit?

Mrepg

You’re totally clueless, so glad you’re not employed in my scientific team! Please don’t ever write a paper for a journal, oh forget you don’t know what one is. All I’m asking for is if there are any decent articles out there showing some efficacy. Now jog on and let those with an IQ above 80 speak! Bye placebo boy!

NikLP

If you don't need this or want it, get off the thread. Furthermore, come again? "empirical /ɛmˈpɪrɪk(ə)l,ɪmˈpɪrɪk(ə)l/ adjective - based on, concerned with, or verifiable by observation or experience rather than theory or pure logic. Bye.

British Gas Energy Plus Protection Jan 2020 - £60 @ uswitch

Quick update after an email sent from Uswitch following the order "As of 11 December 2018, your personal projection (est. annual cost) for the British Gas's Energy Plus Protection Jan 2020 plan is £930.18. This is based on consumption figures of 2330 kWh for electricity and 12384 kWh for gas" My actual gas consumption was 9738 kwh. British gas are quoting me £1109 based on my previous consumption for the next best tariff that you can get directly through them. So baring in mind Uswitch are putting an extra 2500 kwh of gas onto that £930 anyone on any tariff ending soon with BG is worth flipping over to this if you don't want to switch providers.

Tino1985

Smaller companies will always be cheaper to start off with but will eventually rack up the prices but not the service. I think i've called British Gas services once in 3 years, unless you're not paying for what you use or can't afford what you use then I can't quite grasp why people would want to call them.

Tino1985

I've applied for it and i'm with them, when you go through the process it will ask you for your existing account number.

ie10

Agree we were with Outfox until they announced the massive price increase, switched to Utility Point as came out cheapest on Cheap Energy Club, fixed price for 12 months.

Ah nice work, how did you get those lock screen widgets/shortcuts? Is that Tasker creating them? Unsurprisingly the Hive App doesn't support widgets for the Smart Plugs.

Hutch_inson

Absolutely This is my lock screen with 3 Plugs, 3 lights and hub plus I have other Applets within IFTTT and coupled with Tasker to do most stuff I find useful.

Anyone had any luck with integrating their plug with IFTTT or Tasker? Or maybe someone's managed to find a way to change the firmware to remove the need for the hub?

Keyword alert? Huha? Not so deals, you might need to sort your search out. I never signed up for this crap

yespleasesir

Both times I had BG engineers. Maybe I was lucky

Gentle_Giant

The problem is, it is mainly contractors doing their work, and there is very little come-back at them if they do a shoddy job; if you have a good set in your area, be very thankful. They managed to pipe my mums house up back to front; then did a bodge repair they hid under the carpet; never even refitted the floorboards correctly. Sister stupidly gave them a maintenance contract at our old nursery; first time something went wrong they tried to claim we needed a new boiler; called in a local guy for a 2nd opinion, and he fixed it for £5 (plus his fee). After that we switched to him.

yespleasesir

Had 2 call outs this year. No excess. And they sorted it straight away

Gentle_Giant

BG = Wunch of bankers. Will wiggle out of a warrant repair any way they can; and if forced to do it, will do such a bad job, you end up paying someone else 3x as much to put the botch right.

Agreed. I put it off for ages due to the reasons stated. But just realised that my usage was up around 30% compared to last year and needed a way to monitor so I can figure out what's causing it. Choice between buying my own energy monitor or getting paid to install one was simple. So when they recently called me with the offer, I took it. Installed next day. No hassle. Now realised that one of my smart radiators was turning on the boiler, even if the valve was only open by 1%. Now just got to figure out why my house is using a minimum of 400W when most equipment is turned off. Can't imagine I'm using 400W to keep the TV on standby!

hooray.henry

So it only takes £30 to buy the Sheepeople now. :(

GwanGy

pay £400 and get 30 back .....Lol Smart meters ARE just a prelude to variable rate tariffs ... when they have close to 100% coverage they will kick in. If we use less energy , the suppliers win as they can get by without building more capacity, and these will smooth out demand , also dont forget the advent of electric cars.. they will be a major force in electricity usage/storage in the next decades. If you look at the contract struck for the new Tingly C nuclear station , PM has promised the builders a electricity prices far in exess of todays . It is a foretaste of things to come, we're doomed, DOOMED

I had the same. Dispatched then 2 days later cancelled. I managed to get 2 plugs delivered through my BG account. Then i phoned up hive yesterday and asked why my order has been marked as dispatched but hadn't received anything yet. They told me it was cancelled and they don't send "dispatch emails". So she then ordered me the leak sensor again. Told them I'd cancel my hive installation tomorrow and send all the stuff back (lol)

Chowdhury007

exactly my point, I'll try give them a call otherwise I'll just buy one, I was looking at getting the heating system next year so might do that sooner just to get the hub haha

etta191

I am sorry to hear that. Quite surprised at Hive as it was an easy mistake to make :( The way they had set up the landing page from British Gas was without the hub even though advertised on British Gas as included, only upon reading it carefully you see the box to tick for a hub as well. If you ask me for all new customers the hub should be included automatically as obviously they don't have one. And why would they ask for a new code for a new order, that's not what you want as you already have the plug :/

They are still allowed to install 1st gen smart meters until April 2019, they are just trying to install poo in to your house. 1st gen will only work with SSE,so if you move provided its useless, and they keep all the data they have collected about you.

Can confirm this works fine over BT to a Raspberry Pi. I use BTMQTT gateway but I know its also compatible with OpenMQTT Gateway. Mine goes to a Pi Zero as the gateway (as I use flic on the Pi I run Hassio on) and the BT conflicts at times so it was easier to connect it to a separate gateway. The readings are pretty accurate along side my other Xiaomi sensors.

It’s got some poor reviews on Amazon for the app. Supposedly only connects when the language is Chinese. There are examples on YouTube about how to hack the Bluetooth signal with an esp32. Would be interesting to use with a few. Thanks

It's not really free, they are including the prices in their most expensive tariff & calling it free. What's ridiculous is you get different prices on same usage quotes on different days, I got a quote of £92 per month for the free Nest e then the other day I got £84 for the same. Which is still expensive as it's a 2.5 year fixed deal, others quoting me £71 for 12 month fixed. I cancelled my switch with them. So cold from me.

For you perhaps. My cheapest supplier when comparing a few months back, significantly cheaper than he other big 5.

BigDiscovery

We use very little electricity and gas, and second cheapest (with £2 difference per year) for us worked out to be the Outfox the market, we switched to them and are very happy, and saved around £290 a year (comparing to what we were paying E.ON). Also Outfox the market supply 100% green/renewable electricity so by being with them you also support energy from renewable sources so even though they worked out £2 dearer than the cheapest, this is the reason why we chose them! Which is the best deal for you depends on your usage. If you know your yearly figures, have a look on the results on Uswitch website. Do check and if you can get the better deal, do switch! It only took me 20min to switch. Good luck!
