Compare energy suppliers. See if you could save.

We’re Ofgem accredited, impartial and free to use.


Since 2021, the cost of gas and electricity has skyrocketed, which meant massive increases to your bills.

But wholesale prices are beginning to fall, and on 1 July 2023 a new, cheaper energy price cap took effect for the first time in 18 months. As energy prices start to come down, suppliers will begin offering more competitive tariffs again, so you can once again compare prices to see if you can find a cheaper deal.

When will I be able to switch providers?

You can still switch suppliers by going direct, but you’ll probably end up paying more than you do now.

My tariff is running out soon, so what should I do?

Once your tariff ends, your supplier will move you to its standard variable tariff (SVT). This will likely affect your bills as the price can vary throughout the length of the tariff.

Before your current deal ends, you can find out your supplier’s SVT rate and compare this with other tariffs to see if you could save by switching.

What happens if my energy provider goes bust?

If your supplier stops trading, take a meter reading and wait to be contacted. Don’t switch to another provider – it’ll likely fail and further complicate things. Your energy supply won’t be cut off. Once Ofgem have appointed your new supplier, it’ll be in touch.

Who is my energy supplier?

Check your latest energy bill – it should have your supplier’s name and tariff information.

If you don’t have a bill to hand, you can get in touch with Citizens Advice. Alternatively, find your gas or electricity operator is on the Energy Networks Association website. Then give the operator a call to be told who supplies your energy.

Exit fees

It is important to note that exit fees are common with fixed rate tariffs if you switch early. If you are on a fixed rate tariff, then you should check whether you'll incur a fee for cancelling your current energy deal before arranging a transfer to a new energy supplier.

The good news is that all energy suppliers should now allow you to leave up to 49 days ahead of your energy tariff's end date without incurring a penalty.

Your questions answered

How long will the switching take?

Switching can take around three weeks - but this includes your 14 day cooling off period. The actual switch could take as little as five days, or even less.

You'll be told exactly how long it'll take when you arrange your switch with your new supplier.

Will I be left without power during a switch?

No. There should be no disruption to your energy connection, so you can carry on as normal.

Can I change my mind?

Yes! There's a 14 day cooling off period.

If you change your mind during this time, the switch won't go ahead and you'll stay with your existing supplier.

Can I switch energy supplier if I rent?

If you're responsible for paying the bills, then yes you have the right to choose your supplier.

If you're not sure who's responsible for paying the energy bills, check your tenancy agreement.
