Gas & Electricity FAQs

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.

What’s a kilowatt hour?

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

What’s an exit fee?

Suppliers sometimes charge exit fees if you want to leave a fixed energy tariff contract before it ends.

Will my gas or electricity supply be interrupted while switching?

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.

Are smart meters safe?

We’ve checked with Smart Energy GB. They say Public Health England sees no danger or risk from smart meters. The smart meters used in Britain exceed every UK and EU safety standard. So it’s a Yes from us.

How do I find out more about my energy and where it comes from?

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.

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 fixed tariff?

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.
