Better Energy is one of the newer gas suppliers, entering the consumer energy market in 2011
The independent supplier offers a gas only service to consumers in Great Britain. The company aims to supply consumers with electricity by early 2014.
With a tag line of "Same energy, better price", Better Energy aims to provide a simple service to energy customers fed up with complicated tariffs and confusing discount schemes.
Why we like Better Energy
The small gas supplier’s goal is to remove confusion about energy for its customers. It charges one single unit rate, and its services are simple and transparent.
By keeping its overheads low, when compared to the larger energy suppliers, Better Energy says it is able to keep prices lower for its customers. It also reviews prices about once a year.
The small supplier states that if a change in tariff occurs and a customer wishes to change provider, there will be no cancellation charge. In addition, Better Energy will defer the change for a "reasonable amount of time" until the customer can switch suppliers to avoid the price rise.
