Who is the cheapest energy provider?
Trying to define the cheapest energy provider or gas and electricity tariff isn't necessarily straightforward, as each provider has a number of different tariffs available with different features that would suit different people. Also, each energy supplier has different costs depending on where in the country you live and how you prefer to pay your gas and electricity bills. Having said that we can still look at the cheapest gas and electricity tariffs available.
The table below shows the cheapest dual fuel tariffs currently available through UK Power. This table assumes you will pay by monthly direct debit and have a average level of energy usage. Generally speaking, the cheapest tariffs are typically online tariffs where the customer pays via monthly direct debit, however this may not be suitable for every customer so it's best to carry out a full comparison to find the best cheap energy plan for you.
