Switching energy suppliers could mean cheaper electricity and gas

Between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with Uswitch saved £479 or more.

People switching their energy supplier could end up saving money on their electricity and gas bills.

As of Saturday, E.ON announced that it was cutting the cost of gas for its domestic energy customers by 3.3 per cent.

The firm said that the reduction would save consumers an average of £25 a year.

Some 1.8 million E.ON customers will benefit from the reduction in the cost of gas.

The move comes three months after the firm slashed nine per cent from its standard electricity tariff.

Announcing the cut in gas prices, E.ON said it was committed to "offering competitive prices at all times and delivering on our promises" – news which may be of interest to people switching tariffs or comparing energy prices online.

Earlier this year, E.ON said it would spend £6.9 million fitting carbon capture technology at its Kingsnorth power plant – something it hopes will reduce the cost of electricity for its customers.
