Energy price comparison

Make sure you aren't paying too much for your energy

It's likely your energy tariff is price-capped if you haven't switched or your fixed deal has ended. The energy price cap is a backstop, keeping charges fair if you don't shop around. It applies if you're on a default energy tariff, whether you pay by direct debit, standard credit or a prepayment meter.

It won't apply if you:

  • are on a fixed-term energy tariff
  • have chosen a standard variable green energy tariff Ofgem has exempted from the cap

You can contact your supplier to check if you are on their default tariff. If you're not, you may already be paying a better rate for your energy.

But it's still worth checking if you could save more by switching to another tariff or supplier. You can find more information on switching supplier, and links to approved switching sites, on the Ofgem website.
