If you are looking to protect yourself against future energy price increases, then it is a good idea to signup to a fixed rate tariff.
Fixed rate tariffs freeze the price you pay for your gas and electricity for a specified length of time. This can range depending on the tariff selected, from shorter term 1 year tariffs shown on this page, to longer term 2 year or even 3 or 4 year tariffs.
The table below shows the current leading 1 year fixed rate energy tariffs available, along with each tariffs contract term or expiry date. This shows the length of time for which your energy prices will be frozen and for which you will be immune to any price increases.
