Which energy supplier has the cheapest energy plan?

How to find the right energy supplier for you

Once you have run an online energy price comparison, you may find that you’re presented with a supplier as your cheapest option that you may not have heard of, or know very little about. This is particularly likely if the best electricity deal is offered by a small supplier.

Luckily, uSwitch offer customer service ratings to help you make your decision on more than price.

More than suppliers have been assigned a star rating out of five. This rating is based on uSwitch's annual, independent survey of more than 17,000 UK energy customers.

These customers were asked to rate their supplier on:

  • Overall customer satisfaction
  • Value for money
  • Customer service
  • The switchover process
  • How likely they were to recommend their supplier to someone else

uSwitch then equally weighted these scores to provide a supplier rating for each supplier with more than 50 responses.

Would a switch affect my energy supply?

No. When you switch energy supplier, there is no need to worry about potential energy outages. We'll notify your new supplier, who will in turn notify your current supplier to arrange a switchover date — you won't notice a thing until your new, cheaper bill arrives.
