(Gas and Electricity)

In the UK, there are many Gas and Electricity suppliers. You have the right to change supplier if you own or manage the property or housing.

Unfortunately, if you find yourself in rented accommodation, it will be the landlord’s choice of supplier. They may also have fitted energy meters, which can be the most expensive way of paying for energy.

There are, however, a number of energy comparison sites in the UK, so you can check to see if you are paying a fair price for energy.

There are a number of the websites you can use to check your energy suppliers – but to get the best out of these sites, you will need to know how much energy you have been using over a time period (e.g. 6 months to 1 year)

The government body that regulates energy suppliers is called OFGEM.
They maintain a list of energy comparison sites here.
