Changing Energy Supplier and stupid numbers

Just checked on www.moneysupermarket.com and had a real surprise EON have a superb deal which is just like the broadband deals but only for new customers as the saving for 1 year fixed compared to the EON standard 1 year fixed is over £550 per year (13,000kWh usage)

Re: Changing Energy Supplier and stupid numbers

Intresting site with some good deals but you need to be careful, It suggests that if I switch to E-on the annual savings for me would be £390 per annum when compared to my present supplier on my current tariff ( fixed price November 2016 v1)

However, compared to what it has cost me over the past 10 months and estimating Oct/Nov usage based on graphs of previous years the saving come to a more modest £ 150.

Certainly worth changing for but well below the estimated £390.

my present supplier being Extraenergy

OJ! Smiley

Somewhat cheekily OT, may I ask, "why don't you use the page address for the deals, and not that of MS gateway"? To your fellow super-matured netter that would be helpful.Smiley

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

The Eon deal is not available direct from Eon, only thru the likes of MS and other sites.

Swmbo recons Eon, by not offering the 'deal' to current customers are infringing reforms set out by Ofgen in 2012 to make the energy market simpler and fairer. 

 

(From Competition and Markets Authority We propose to modify the gas and electricity standard licence conditions to remove... the prohibition against tariffs exclusive to new/existing customers.’

@journeys

OFGEM has totally backtracked on simplifying tariffs and have given the all clear to suppliers to offer whatever they want. They found that the 2012 rules they devised didn't work to promote competition. Something they were told at the time by many sources. But as the Tories had promised in their manifesto to simplify tariffs, it went ahead.

@Luzern A link to the deal wouldn't work as it is post code dependant and relies on cookies

I am with E.ON and am just a bit hacked off by this "new customers only" deal. The best they are offering existing customers is a TWO YEAR fixed deal at a rate not much better than their standard rate. Ticked off

Best deal so far from the big firms is SSE, at not much more than my expiring E.ON deal, or chance one of the new smaller suppliers and save the odd £30

Re: Changing Energy Supplier and stupid numbers

SSE are not much better

These numbers are for my usage based on one year fixed

	         kWh	rate	standing charge	  result
EON deal	13000	9.041	  32.151	 £1,292.68 
SSE standard	13000	12.06	  23.02	         £1,651.82 
EON Standard	13000	13.766	  16.422	 £1,849.52 
SSE deal        13000	10.521	  20.276	 £1,441.74

Re: Changing Energy Supplier and stupid numbers

oJ, thanks. I understand, but I'm a little more devious than you, often putting in spurious details on sites to get info unidentified.Shocked

BTW  that 13000 kwh was it just gas ,electrity or both?

Re: Changing Energy Supplier and stupid numbers

@Oldjim So the higher cost of electricity vs gas would account for the savings offered.

I doubt someone like me, 12500 kwh gas, 3100kwh  leccy, would get anywhere near as much benefit.
