Types of energy tariffs in UK

There are a few different tariff options for your gas and electricity needs:

  1. Standard variable tariff – this is the provider’s default tariff, you’ll be automatically moved to it when your tariff ends
  2. Dual fuel tariff – a tariff for both your gas and electricity. You’ll only need to deal with one supplier for both, but it’s worth shopping around to see if single fuel tariffs work out cheaper
  3. Fixed rate tariff – yes, you guessed it. Your tariff is fixed for a set period, during this time it will not fluctuate up or down
  4. Capped rate tariff – this allows the cost of your tariff to decrease and it won’t be able to increase above a predetermined amount
  5. Green tariff – an environment friendly option which can either be 100% renewable or a mix of renewable and non-renewable sources
  6. Collective tariff – enables people to group together to negotiate a deal on their energy with the supplier. You won’t be able to find this option on comparison websites
  7. Prepayment energy tariff – You’ll have a prepaid meter in your home which you can top up to continue your gas and electricity

Switching energy tariffs in UK

You can switch your energy tariff in just three days and you don’t even have to pick up the phone and talk to anyone.

  • Just switch online and your new supplier will sort it all out, including contacting your current energy provider, so no awkward goodbyes.
  • You’ll experience no disruption in your energy supply and should seamlessly be hooked up to your new provider. It’s as easy as that.
  • Remember that you have a 14-day cooling off period between completing your application and the switching of your suppliers starting. So if you’re going to change your mind – that’s the time to do it.
