Npower has announced that its will offer a new cut-price deal aimed at helping out struggling families.
The new 'Sign Online 8' tariff is only available to consumers signing up over the internet. Around 80 per cent of Brits qualify the deal, the terms of which make Npower the cheapest supplier for four out of five of high users and families.
Analysts have termed the deal as "highly competitive"
"It's great for competition in the energy sector - we've not had the best of summers and with autumn not far away, thousands of customers will soon be searching out the cheapest deals ahead of the winter months," Karen Derby, an expert on online tariffs, commented.
"This move by Npower should prompt rival suppliers to lower their prices, just as people start to turn on their heating."
