Frequently asked questions

How do I know if I'm getting a good deal from my gas & electricity supplier?

Suppliers often change their tariffs and therefore if you want to be sure that you are getting the best deal it is worth checking comparison websites every six months to a year. Energy suppliers are now also required to provide you with assistance to ensure the tariff you are paying for is most suitable for your needs.

Can I get financial help towards high bills?

If you think your bills are too high, firstly discuss them with your energy supplier as there may be an alternative tariff which would suit you better. If you receive Pension Credit or another income related benfit then you might qualify for the Warm Home Discount which is a rebate from your fuel supplier on your electricity bill. Some fuel suppliers have charitable trust funds that help people who have fuel debt that they cannot pay off.
