Cheers. Mike.

I have been with Bulb for a couple of years now & it seems pretty good. I've no plans to change from them.

You can give your own meter readings & get an exact usage each month.

Take a look at their prices, if you decide to go with them I can introduce you & we both get something like £50 or £100 each for the privilege.

We went over to Bulb about 2 years ago, still paying £80 a MONTH less than we payed with EON

We use a load of gas and Pure planet was by far the cheapest. Itís also 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon offset gas. As seems to be the way these days you enter your meter readings on the App - whole process really couldnít be easier.

I found it really easy to switch and have had no issues with them. As with most other suppliers if I introduce you we both get £50 of Amazon vouchers. PM me if you want an introduction.

I have been with So Energy for the last 2 yrs. I cannot get cheaper and they sent me a family & friends link. If you sign up using it I get £40 and you get £40.

I promise you I am not affiliated and I'm not selling.......but maybe worth a try?

ditto that. Their app is simple and really well done too.

When I looked around about 6 months ago, Octopus were the cheapest. They're also nice to deal with.

An extra bonus is, when I get a smart meter, I can have 4 hours of super-cheap electricity in the wee hours to charge my Nissan Leaf. Well below half of the normal economy 7 night rate.

Many thanks Guy's

Been with npower for a couple of years as they're cheapest in my area.

Was with Ovo before them.

Ovo came and installed "smart meters" for gas and electric free of charge.

Changed to npower who started requesting meter readings. When I advised them several times there were smart meters already there it turns out they couldn't read them remotely. I now have to get npower to come and install "smart meters" free of charge that they can read remotely. That's my only gripe. price wise our gas and electric bills dropped by around £150 a year between Ovo and npower - prefer the money in my pocket.

Bulb is the cheapest for me if I don't go with eon, but eon are forcing smart meters for their cheap contracts and I categorically don't want a smart meter.

That's not really Npower's fault though, that's the incompetents working on the Smart Meter project. We've got a similar situation with our British Gas smart meters, if we move away from British Gas then no other company will be able to read them.
