More on the switching process

[1] With a variable price tariff your energy prices may increase or decrease at any time, but we’ll let you know 30 days before we increase your prices. With a fixed price tariff your energy prices are fixed until your tariff ends unless it is a tariff where the price may decrease. Or the government or regulator does something that changes the price. See the tariff terms and conditions for more information, http://www.sainsburysenergy.com/products-and-services/energy/our-energy-tariffs/tariff-a-z.html.

[2] Personal Projection is an estimated cost of what you’ll pay for 12 months using the tariff unit rate for where you live, the daily standing charge, your annual consumption and any discounts that apply to you. It includes VAT.

[3] The TCR is based on national average consumption of 12,500 kWh for gas and 3,100 kWh for electricity. Your total bill will vary based on your actual consumption.

[4] The standing charge is applied on a pence per day basis. It helps cover an energy supplier's fixed costs.

[5] Where you have both gas and electricity with us at the same property, you’ll receive one Dual Fuel Discount of £15 per year (including VAT). The discount will be continuously applied to your bill throughout your billing period if you use a credit meter or applied to your meter at least once a year if you use a prepayment meter. If you cancel this agreement (for example by switching to another energy supplier), you will receive a Dual Fuel Discount for the number of days you have been with us during that one year period.

Able to speak to someone about any enquiries you may have
Don't like an estimated account, would prefer an e-mail from you requesting my meter readings or someone calling to read them and if I am not in, leave a card and I can e-mail the readings to you.

The Tariff Comparison Rate (TCR) is a single figure that represents the cost per kWh that a typical consumer would incur on this tariff. It is based on an assumed consumption level of 12,500 kWh for gas, and 3,100 kWh for electricity and includes the unit rates and standing charges of the tariff, along with certain types of discounts and bundled products and services. It can be used as an approximate guide for comparing tariffs, and is not an actual price. You can find the TCR of your current tariff on your bill or annual statement. Further explanation of the TCR can be found below.

Included in TCR calculation:

  • Payment method
  • Unit rate
  • Standing charge
  • Dual Fuel discount

Excluded in TCR calculation:

  • Exit fee
  • Late payment fee
  • Additional products & services (e.g. Gift cards and Nectar points)
