How to compare the best gas and electricity deals

If, like most people, you rarely look at the price you're paying for energy, you could be missing out on saving. There aren't any bonuses for loyalty when it comes to energy tariffs and sticking with the same supplier could be costing you money.

That's why we created an energy tariff comparison tool, to allow you to quickly and easily compare prices, making sure that you get the best energy supplier deals.

It takes less than 5 minutes to switch:

Step 1: Enter your details

Simply enter your name, postcode, and email address - we'll take it from there.

Step 2: Let Hoppy do the heavy lifting

We'll compare energy suppliers and show you the best deals

Step 3: Time to start saving

Confirm that you'd like to switch with us and we'll tell your new supplier. Just sit back, relax, and start saving.

If you have any questions or need help finding a deal, don't hesitate to call us: 020 3828 7053 (standard call charges apply).

FAQs

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.

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’s an exit fee?

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

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.

How are service ratings calculated?

Switching suppliers isn't only about the cheapest tariff. Many customers want to know about other important things like customer service. The service ratings in our results tables give a guide to the level of service you can expect from a supplier using an easy-to-understand star system:  

1 star = very poor 

2 stars = poor 

3 stars = average 

4 stars =good 

5 stars = excellent 

Ratings are calculated using Citizens Advice stats. They include the number and severity of customer complaints received, customer service availability and the quality of their online services. The service ratings were last updated in July 2017.

Why do I need to give meter readings?

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.
