Don't know about England/Wales but in Scotland we have NO choice of water providers, it is bundled in with the pol tax council tax.

I've gone with the co-op as they have a policy of only having one simple tariff and they are pretty competitive on price

That's why I liked what the co-op are offering. None of this offering new customers better deals and needing to keep changing accounts to stay on the best deal.

I'd rather stay with one supplier on a good deal than faff around every few months changing to get the latest 'best deal' - temporarily.

That's why I opt for a long term deal, fixed price for 1-4 years. Then I look for another when it finishes. Works best for me, I don't have variable payments and know what I am paying for next year or so, makes it easier to budget.

Some energy companies are now offering loyalty discounts

I have just signed up for a 12 month deal which is actually cheaper than the standard rate. I could have gone for a longer one but with the politicians talking about reducing the green/environmental/social levy on fuel bills it didn't seem like a good idea
Regarding variable payments - that doesn't really work in my case as my central heating is electric and the usage is very variable depending on how cold the winter is so although the outgoings are fixed for the year there will be a significant balancing payment at the end of the year or a large change in the monthly direct debit
I suspect that if they work out the monthly direct debit on last years bill I could get a rebate next year if the winter isn't too cold

Re: Energy company recommendations

I was just trying to see details of the latest offerings from Npower but they have done a major update of their computer system and broke it.
I did, however catch sight of a 4 year fixed price deal into 2017.
I've just counted 78 tariffs on Npower Shocked

Re: Energy company recommendations

I pay £90/month for both gas/electic no matter summer or winter. The deal I am on has no exit penalty so if they do reduce the cost then I can switch again if it is cheaper.
Have a look at the Cheap Energy Club - http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/cheapenergyclub for the deals at the moment.

Re: Energy company recommendations

I've recently changed from Opus Energy to E-On.
It was a flippin' nightmare though, because previously the Housing were paying all the utility bills on the Flat, now I, as the Tenant, have to pay for Gas, Leccy and Water rates, and it's been a nightmare because the companies wouldn't change from Business use to domestic!
It's all sorted now though.
