Energy Questions

What does ‘standard variable’ mean?

A standard variable tariff is an energy supplier’s core tariff. They don’t have an end date. Ofgem’s data shows that standard variable tariffs are often more expensive than fixed tariffs so it’s definitely worth getting a quote for a new deal if you’re on one of these tariffs.

What are the different types of energy tariff?

There are several energy tariff options to choose from for your gas and electricity needs. Your choice will depend on if you want your bill to be a set price, or are happy with price variations. The 5 main energy tariffs are:

Standard Variable Tariff

This is the default tariff for most suppliers and once your current tariff ends you'll be automatically moved across to this.

Duel Fuel Tariff

As the name suggests, this is a tariff for both gas and electricity. One of the main benefits is that you'll only need to deal with one supplier for both, but it's always good to shop around to see if you could get a better deal on a single fuel tariff.

Fixed Rate Tariff

This tariff is fixed for a set period of time and is usually anywhere between 1 and 4 years. During this time, your tariff will not fluctuate up or down.

Capped Rate Tariff

This allows the cost of your tariff to decrease, however, it will never increase above a set amount.

Green Tariff

This is a great option for those looking to improve their eco-friendly credentials. You can choose between a mix of 100% renewable energy or a blend of both renewable and non-renewable.

Payment Method

The type of payment you select can have an impact on how much you pay. There are lots of different types of payment options available with most energy providers. But the main two are prepaid and monthly direct debit. Energy providers usually save their best deals for their direct debit customers, so this payment option is worthwhile considering if it's feasible.

Who are Ofgem?

Ofgem is the energy regulator. It stands for ‘Office of Gas and Electricity Markets’. Their remit is to protect the interests of energy consumers by promoting value for money and the security of supply. They supervise markets and ensure competition. Ofgem also ensure the delivery of government schemes.

What are the different meter types?

Meters come in different shapes and sizes. There’s the prepayment meter where you pay for your energy in advance and ‘top up’ your meter. Standard meters –  the most common meter type – allow you to pay for your gas and electricity by cash, card or direct debit. Economy 7 electricity meters charge different rates for day and night usage, the night time rate will be cheaper.  

A word on smart meters. The government wants the majority of homes across the UK to have a smart meter installed. If you don’t have one already, these meters deal directly with energy suppliers, meaning there’s no need to send meter reads and your bills should be more accurate as you’ll only pay for what you use.

How can I switch energy supplier?

There are lots of ways. You can visit a supplier’s website directly or give them a call. Alternatively, use a price comparison website (like Hoppy!) You’ll get the most accurate quotes if you have your most recent bill handy.

Once you choose a new tariff, your new supplier will contact your old one so you don’t have to.

What’s a kilowatt hour?

Also known as a kWh, a kilowatt hour measures energy. You’ll see them on your bill.

How do I know prices won't go down after I switch?

Energy prices have risen steadily over the last few years, with only the odd dip. They're affected by so many different factors that it's almost impossible to predict what’s going to happen in the short-term. Trends suggest that prices will continue to rise in the long-term, so it’s important to regularly compare suppliers' tariffs and switch to save money.
