11 October 2021 - Wholesale energy prices – the prices suppliers pay to buy energy – have risen by about 250% since January. As we have recently seen when this happens it’s usually unwelcome news for customers as it means an increase in their energy bills. Those on Variable tariffs will have recently experienced this.
11 October 2021 - On 1st October, the new energy price cap set by the Government came into effect, bringing a rise to energy prices. Here we explain why this has happened, and how these changes affect UW customers and the tariffs they're on.
24 September 2021 - The wholesale price of gas has increased significantly during 2021. A sharp rise of 70% in August sent shockwaves throughout the industry, causing seven energy suppliers to go bust in two months.
Simply put, these failed energy companies had promised to sell gas to customers for less than it was costing them to buy it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
UW supports the Smart Energy Guarantee, which allows customers who generate renewable electricity to receive payments for any exports back to the grid. You can find more information here.
