Whether trying to beat price rises or wanting to control energy costs, millions have switched their energy to capped or fixed price tariffs. Now with many of these tariffs coming to the end of their fixed terms and suppliers offering these customers a bewildering range of tariff options to move onto, many have been wondering whether they’re still getting a good deal.
We’ve taken account of these concerns by modifying our comparison calculator. Instead of working out your savings based on the prices you’re currently on, we’ve adjusted our calculator to also use the prices you’ll most likely be put on by your current supplier in the next 12 months.
If however, you'd rather still see an energy comparison based on your current prices, that's not a problem. When you get to the results table, open up the additional filters and choose the option to re-calculate savings based on your current prices only.
