What information do I need to start comparing energy tariffs?

Here’s what you will need to compare energy prices, switch your supplier and start saving today:

  • Your current suppliers name
  • The name of the tariff you are on
  • How much energy you use, either in kWh (kilowatt hours) or pounds
