    Gas & Electricity Suppliers

    I am viewing a 1 bedroom flat tomorrow in a fairly good location and I am just getting things ready as I am more than likely to move into it. This is the first place on my own but need to know who is the best supplier for Gas & Electricity.

    Let me know who you use.

    Cheers

    Ebico have been fantastic for me...excellent pricing (and its the same if you are on paper bill or pre payment meter)...never had an issue with them. They are a subsidiary of Scottish Electric I believe.

    Some info about complaints and who's worst (npower) - Npower bottom of energy provider league table | Money | guardian.co.uk

    I've been with British Gas for ages (dual fuel and an internet tariff). For me the prices are good but I use very little gas (and not that much electricity; heating and hot water are provided as part of my service charge) It's easy to submit meter readings online and they also send readers round in the evening and at weekends - much more sensible than during the working day when no-one's at home!

    Another Atlanic user here. The effective free month is a nice perk, mine comes in December! I did look a few months ago and even with this back, more suppliers are starting to get very close on pricing.

    British Gas for both. As a normally very light user, the lack of standing charge made them very competitive. Probably time I had a look around again though.

    Ebico are good, in that they don't discriminate between credit and prepay meters...

    However, sometimes other providers can beat them. Shop around. Our current cottage is with NPower for Gas and Electric. Currently working on a monthly bill for power of about 200, and gas the same...the joys of an 18thC cottage with solid walls and single glazing. That's only attempting to heat to 16 degrees too..it rarely gets to 14, never mind 16 in cold weather!

    NPower sign online 20 is the cheapest duel fuel atm. I just switched (from another NPower tarrif). As long as you do paper billing, manage account online, and stay with them until Jan 1 2012.

    I use Eon for both Electricity and Gas, went to them because they were the cheapest for us on uSwitch at the time. Only problem I ever had with them was when they tried to charge me 400 a month because they hadn't been able to check the meters, I rang them up and gave them the figures and they said "Will 70 a month be ok" ....true bloody right it was...nearly had a heart attack when I opened the letter!

    Cheers for all the replies, I ended up not getting that flat as it was too shabby, needed to much doing to it, currently trying to get funds for a property I have seen to buy.
