*Savings and Guarantee are compared to the Ofgem price cap level for default energy tariffs based on payment by direct debit for typical household consumption of 2,900 kWh electricity and 12,000 kWh gas. When any changes to the Ofgem price cap level are made, we will adjust our own tariffs to ensure they comply with our Guarantee for the date the new price cap level is introduced. Our Energy Price Guarantee does not apply to our Green Fixed tariff.

FAQs

How long will my switch take?

We work hard to ensure your switch goes as quickly as possible, normally within 21 days. We’ll keep you updated of progress during this time.

Do I need to contact my current supplier?

No, we’ll contact them to let them know about your move. 

In a few weeks time we’ll ask you for meter readings, at which point we’ll start billing you for your energy, and your current supplier will stop (so that you never pay for the same energy twice). Your old supplier will then arrange to send out a final invoice to you.

What happens if I already have a smart meter?

If you have a second-generation smart meter, this will transfer to us with all its smart benefits intact, and we’ll start communicating with it to collect your accurate readings.

If you have a first-generation smart meter not made by Secure, unfortunately it won’t currently work with us in smart mode, so you'll need to give us meter readings.  

Our first-generation smart meters are made by the company Secure. Other suppliers who also use them include Utilita, Ovo, E.On and Octopus. 

If you have a secure smart meter, we will continue to use this in smart mode so nothing will change.

Should I cancel my old supplier’s Direct Debit?

No – in a few weeks’ time we’ll ask you for meter readings, at which point we’ll start billing you for your energy, and your current supplier will stop billing you. So won’t pay for the same energy twice. Your old supplier will then arrange to send out a final invoice to you. We recommend leaving your Direct Debit in place until that invoice has been paid.

Will I be charged cancellation fees?

If you're in contract or on a Fixed term tariff, some suppliers may charge a cancellation fee. It's best to check this with your current supplier.
