You could be missing out on £100s of savings by staying with your current energy supplier.
To switch supplier, you’ll need to know your postcode, how you pay for your energy (direct debit, monthly or quarterly bill) and have your most recent annual summary or bill because this will show you:
- The name of the tariff you are currently on
- How much energy you used in the last 12 months
- Your personal projection – how much energy your supplier estimates you’ll use over the next 12 months

There are a number of ways you can find a better deal on your energy, including:
- Talking to your current supplier
- Contacting other suppliers to see what they can offer or
- Checking a price comparison site
Who can switch?
Most people can switch supplier. Even if you have a pre-payment meter, you can still switch with a debt of up to £500.
If you rent and have responsibility for the energy bills, you also have the right to switch. A landlord only has the right to choose the energy supplier if they are paying the energy bills.
