Switching Gas and Electricity Suppliers Can Save Your Money!

Many people make the mistake of continuing with the same gas and electricity suppliers year on year without ever bothering to check how their current suppliers compare against other players in the market in terms of price and service. There is a fair chance you might be able to get the same service at a lesser rate from another supplier.

Whenever your contract is up for renewal, spend some time comparing the rates of energy providers in your area and see if you can get a better rate elsewhere. There are many sites that can help you do this. Look for sites like vswitchusave that are intuitive in bringing you suppliers based on not only tariff but also your consumption history so that you get the best deal overall. Once you have identified a supplier, you can contact them to switch your connection.

You would generally be required to provide the following information:

  • Your current tariff (available on your bill)
  • Your payment method
  • Your average gas/electricity consumption (from past bills or from your annual statement)

Your new supplier will own the task of switching your connection. The switching process will take a maximum of 3 weeks and the transition is smooth without any interruption of supply. You will need to provide the new supplier with meter readings on the date of the switch or when requested. If you happen to change your mind about switching providers, you can withdraw your application within 14 days without incurring a fee.

It is advisable to check beforehand if you will incur any penalty for terminating your existing connection, like in the case of fixed rate connections.

Switching is a common process and over 250,000 people across UK switch their energy providers or tariff every month to achieve savings in their monthly bills. Compare providers in your area today and make the switch to stop overpaying and save money.
