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.
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.
Suppliers sometimes charge exit fees if you want to leave a fixed energy tariff contract before it ends.
Our goal at Hoppy is to make switching energy suppliers and managing your home as easy as possible – giving you more time for the fun stuff in life. Not only do we compare a selection of independent energy suppliers with very low rates, but the energy calculator Hoppy uses is accredited by Ofgem.

According to Ofgem, more than 50% pay their energy bills using Direct Debit. It’s quick and easy and you can spread payments equally over the length of your tariff. This means that even though you’re likely to use more energy in the winter and less in the summer, your payments will be the same. Your supplier will tell you how your DD is calculated and you’ll have regular reviews to make sure you’re not paying too little or too much.
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.

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.
