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

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 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.

Should I cancel my direct debit after switching?

Yes, it's a good idea to cancel your Direct Debit with your old supplier. They’ll send you a final bill once your account is closed. It's best to wait until the final payment has left your account and then cancel your Direct Debit.

If you've been overpaying, and your account is in credit, the supplier should send you the remaining balance.

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.

How long does it take to switch energy 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.

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.

Where do Hoppy's energy deals come from?

Working with energyhelpline's mega-powerful comparison engine gives us detailed info on energy tariffs available across the market. Hoppy also gives access to small independent providers you can’t always find on the major comparison websites.

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.

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.
