If you haven’t reviewed your gas and electricity tariff for a while, I would recommend you do so to make sure you are not paying too much for your energy. Our tariff was a 12 month fixed tariff and it ended recently. The energy supplier recommended us a new tariff which was their lowest priced tariff based on our usage. However, when we compared the TCR from the old tariff to the new tariff, electricity was increasing from 11.89p/kWh to 15.64p/kWh and gas was increasing from 3.6p/kWh to 4.44p/kWh. This would have been a hike of 32% and 23% respectively! So unsurprisingly, we didn’t take up their recommended tariff and we changed supplier. Now our new electricity and gas TCRs are 12.5 p/kWh and 2.79 p/kWh respectively which we’re really pleased with as the price of gas has come down!
