What can I do about rising electricity prices?

The cost of electricity only seems to be going in one direction, but that doesn't mean you can't do something about it.

Try comparing prices to see if you are on the best deal. If you're on a standard variable rate tariff, it's likely you'll be able to find a better deal.

Simply enter your postcode and start your electricity comparison.

Will my electricity supply be affected when I switch?

No. Every supplier uses the same wires and cables to provide you with energy so don’t let a fear of power cuts put you off running an electricity price comparison.

Should you decide to change supplier, your new and old providers will work together to ensure no disruption occurs leaving you to enjoy the best electricity prices. Compare electricity rates and switch using our simple and painless process today.
