British householders set to suffer from a hike in energy prices this year may find comparing electricity online is one of the most effective ways of slashing their bills.

It could even be the recommended course of action from those working on the Energy Best Deal campaign, which is being run by Citizens Advice.

Last year, some 44,000 people are said to have benefited from the scheme and the charity is stepping up its action in 2011.

It provides information and advice packs to consumers in need of help regarding their home fuel payments.

"At a time when temperatures are regularly freezing it is more important than ever to reach the more vulnerable consumers. It is vital that they know how to get the best deal on their energy," explains John Rhodes, head of financial capability at Citizens Advice.

If the Daily Mail is correct, this could be via comparing electricity online, as the newspaper reported a switch of energy supplier has the potential to save people £277 a year.
