Yes. Hoppy helps Thousands of people save millions of pounds on bills every year by switching through energyhelpline. They were one of the first comparison sites so they’ve built up in-depth knowledge of the energy industry. They’re completely impartial, comparing deals from all UK suppliers, so you can rest assured you're getting the best deals out there.
All electricity and gas price comparisons follow the Ofgem Confidence Code, a voluntary code of practice that governs energy comparison websites, and means they have to treat you fairly.
Fixed tariffs have fixed price rates per kilowatt hour, and an end date. Some are short term fixed – usually for a year – and some are fixed for longer. Fixed tariffs protect homes from energy price rises.
Electricity is generated via all manner of sources: coal, gas, nuclear and renewables. Some customers are keen to understand if they’re using energy that’s either from a low carbon or renewable source. Suppliers are obliged to tell their customers about their fuel sources and publish this information on their websites. To save you checking all the suppliers individually, check out the Electricity Info website to see environmental news and information about the UK electricity supply industry.
With Hoppy? Super simple! We’ll do all the hard work, you just have to follow the steps below.
- Enter your name, postcode, and email address
- Let us know your energy usage and current supplier
- We'll show you the best gas and electricity deals in your area
- Pick the plan that suits you
- That's it, you've switched. We'll manage the rest and tell your new supplier
Our comparison calculator compares your current usage details with tariffs for all UK suppliers to see who offers the best deals. It takes into account loads of different factors, such as your energy usage, meter type, preferred payment method, where you live and whether you’re after a dual fuel or single fuel tariff.
If you're on a fixed tariff that's ending in the next 12 months, it takes that into account as well. And it works out your savings based on the unit rates you're currently on as well as the rates you'll be put on when your fixed tariff expires.
If you'd rather see a comparison based on your current fixed tariff rates only - no problem. Just choose the filter at the top of the results table that says ‘Recalculate savings using last year's spend.’
For the most accurate comparison, take the usage from your bill and enter it into the kWh box. If you don't have one to hand, tell us how much you spend each month or, if you don't know that either, you can estimate based on questions such as how many bedrooms you have.
No, there will be no interruption. When switching, only your energy supplier will change, so no need to worry about your supply being cut-off or additional work needing to be done. Once you've switched over, your new energy bill will come from your new supplier.
It should take no longer than 3 weeks to switch over to your new energy supplier. Most energy companies in the UK are signed up to the Energy Switch Guarantee, this means that the process will be handled by the supplier and must be completed within 21 days.
If there are any issues – such as if you have any outstanding debt – you’ll be notified during the switch process.
There is also a 14-day cooling off period, which means you can switch again without penalty in the first two weeks. Offering complete peace of mind.
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.
TILs show all the key info relating to the tariff such as name, end date, exit fees and unit rates. They’re available on your bills and annual statements.
More meter readings mean more accurate bills as your supplier won’t estimate your usage. Your supplier will send you reminders, but you may wish to give reads monthly. Check with your supplier how they accept reads.
