How it works
Switching energy is a simple process once you have the right information to hand and know what you're looking for.
To make it easy for you, we've put together a simple checklist for you to fill out with your bill that will tell us what you're looking for. Simply fill it in, send us a copy of your bill, and we'll see if we can save you money.
- Fill in the checklist
- Send us a copy of your bill
- We'll compare the entire market, and find the best deal for you
- We'll get in touch to tell you how much you could save, and you can decide if you want to switch
Once you've sent us your bill and the completed checklist, we should be able to tell whether we can save you money. If we can find you savings, we will get in touch and, with your permission, switch you to a better energy plan.

Consider an online comparison
The concept of switching online may seem daunting, and for good reason. Most energy bills are complicated enough to decipher on their own, let alone translating that information into a form online.
However, at uSwitch we've made it our mission to have our switching process as simple as possible. All you need is a copy of your latest energy bill and five minutes time, and we can show you if we can save you money.
The best way to compare energy deals is to use your consumption details in kWh. You should be able to find those on your bill but don't worry if you can't. We can run an accurate comparison for you using your spending details in pounds too. Click here for our in-depth guide to deciphering your bill.
Once you find a plan suitable for you we handle the rest. Just fill in some basic details and submit your switch. We will then contact your new supplier and send through your details. Your new supplier will then contact your old supplier and request a switch. Within four to six weeks you will be on your new plan, paying less for your energy.
