Tips

  • It is important to compare your tariff on a regular basis, at least annually
  • Make a note of the date any fixed or discounted tariff ends, then make sure you are still on a competitive tariff
  • New entrants to the energy market will offer very competitive deals to get some market share, so keep up to date with any increases
  • As always, make sure you read the "small print" on all deals to ensure  you are making a fully informed decision
