Make sure you have the right information to hand to help you compare energy deals
Before you compare the market, you’ll need to know your energy consumption and how much you’re paying.
You’ll find all the information you need on your latest bill or Annual Statement. If you don’t have this to hand, you can contact your energy company.
What kind of energy deal is right for you?
Think about what is important to you. This could be the cheapest deal, customer service, renewable energy or a flexible deal that lets you change provider at any time without paying a termination fee. You will find some great advice at websites such as goenergyshopping.co.uk or citizensadvice.org.uk/energy.
You can compare the market and find the best deals by:
- Using an accredited energy comparison website or the Citizens Advice comparison tool
- Joining a collective switching scheme
- Visiting promotional events in shopping centres and supermarkets
