Switching Energy Providers
* Over 5.8 Million people switched their electricity energy provider last year according to the industry trade association, Energy UK. ** The energy regulator Ofgem said that customers who switched to a new tariff saved an average of £300 during a switching trial of 50,000 customers who were on a standard tariff for 3 years or more with one of the top 6 energy suppliers.
PocketRate have teamed up with Ofgem accredited price comparison website, Quotezone, to provide our energy comparison system - allowing you to compare the cheapest prices of dual energy tariffs and switch gas and electricity providers.
Gas & Electricity Duel Fuel
The benefit of convenience associated with dual fuel is that you only need to deal with one company should there be a bill query, complaint or when moving home. Certain suppliers will also offer the convenience of a single bill.
The energy results allow you to switch between comparing dual tariffs, to electricity only tariffs and gas only tariffs without entering your information again, so you can be sure to find the best deal for your needs.
Switch providers in minutes
It only takes a couple of minutes to compare gas and electricity suppliers – simply provide some basic information about your current energy supply on our online form to find out how much you could save on your energy bills.
