Energy Deals for April 2019

On 1 April,  energy companies were permitted to increase customers’ bills, by roughly £117 per year on average. However, there is a way out if you’re affected – and it could save you £329 per year.

The higher prices charged to customers on standard or default tariffs were a result of the energy regulator, Ofgem, raising its cap on these types of tariff. If you’re one of those customers, you certainly don’t have to resign yourself to paying more for gas and electricity.

A wider range of cheaper energy deals are starting to creep back onto the market. We found more than three times the number of energy deals costing less than £1,000 for the average user on sale in March, compared with December (before the first price cap was introduced). Switching could save you £329 per year.
