It takes just a few minutes to compare gas and electricity suppliers with UKPower.

Comparing energy deals from right across the market, including smaller suppliers, means you’ll get a more accurate view of the latest and best deals available. We compare all tariffs, and calculate costs based on your requirements and consumption habits, and if there are any aspects of energy switching you’re unsure of, our guide pages offer information of everything from tariff types to energy saving tips.

How to find the cheapest energy supplier

If you want to make sure you’re on the cheapest energy deal available, you’ll need to consider some options that you may not have previously thought of, like how you’ll pay your bills and whether you should use the same supplier for both gas and electricity.

Using the same supplier for both fuels is often cheaper and more convenient than going with separate supplier for both – dealing with the one energy company means you have just one contract to consider when renewal time rolls around, and suppliers will often offer a discount for customers who sign up to a dual fuel tariff.

You might also get an additional discount if you pay your energy bills by monthly Direct Debit, so it’s always worth checking out the bill payment options when running an energy comparison.

You may find that the best deal comes from a supplier you’ve never heard of, but don’t let this put you off switching to them - every energy supplier in the UK is regulated by Ofgem, which means that smaller companies have to follow exactly the same rules as the bigger and better known suppliers.

Although cutting the cost of your energy bills will most likely be your main motive for switching, you should also consider things like billing accuracy, customer service scores and the cost of any early exit fees before signing up with a new supplier.

If a dual fuel deal isn’t for you, say you don’t use a lot of gas or use an independent gas transporter, you can compare gas prices or compare electricity only deals.

How to compare gas and electric companies

Below is a list of all the gas and electricity suppliers in the UK. As you can see, there are far more options available than simply switching to one of the Big Six, and there are more and more local-authority owned energy companies entering the market, such as LECCY on Merseyside and Robin Hood Energy in Nottingham, to offer cheaper energy in their respective regions.
