Knowing your tariff name and energy usage information helps us produce an accurate quote, which means that we can tell you more accurately how much money you could save by switching.
If you don’t know what tariff you’re on you’ll be able to find it referred to on your most recent bill. Look for an information section where there is often a ‘tariff name’ field, otherwise somewhere on the bill it should say what tariff you currently have. If you can’t find reference to a specific tariff name, it may be that you are on a ‘standard variable tariff’, or ‘SVT’. This means that your energy prices move up and down over time, rather than being fixed for a certain period. You energy supplier will also be able to tell you your tariff name if you get in contact with them.
Another useful thing you’ll find on your energy bill is your estimated annual usage, given in kilowatt hours (kWh). This is how much actual gas and electricity your current provider thinks you’ll use, based on your historic usage. We’ll ask you for this information during the switch and your quote will be more accurate if you can provide it. You’ll also find this information on the annual energy statement that your current supplier sends you.
If you can’t find your tariff information or usage you can still switch based on an estimated figure, but this will be less accurate.
