More on the switching process

[1] 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. 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.

reasonable price offered for dual fuel
terrible customer service. I asked for my DD to be set up for the 2nd of the month, it hasn't even started and its 20th now. I was asked to submit a meter reading, which I have tried to do but the online tools only allow me 4 boxes and my meter readings are both 5 boxes. I have contacted customer services four days ago, no reply yet. Not a great start

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

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