Switching your energy supplier

You will probably save money on your gas and electricity bills by switching to a new supplier.

There are a few things you need to check first:

  • Do you have a debt?
  • What meter do you have?
  • Do you have an exit fee?

You may still be able to switch even if you have a debt, a repayment meter, or an exit fee. Check with your supplier.
