The term ‘price cap’ suggests protection against an increase in your bill prices. It is Ofgem’s role to provide a fair deal to consumers, however this does not mean you are necessarily getting the best deal on the market.
How can I protect myself from the energy price rise?
If you’ve never switched energy providers before, it couldn’t be easier. Simply find an old bill that shows your projected or actual usage. Click on the deal and follow through the instructions to enter your postcode and current supplier.
Once you’ve inputted details about your current supplier, run the comparison and choose the right deal for you. Then simply switch and start saving!
Once you’ve switched you don’t need to tell your existing supplier. Just take meter readings on the date you switch and keep a safe record of them.
