Trying to calculate the average energy bill can sometimes be tricky, as there are many different elements that contribute to how much you pay for your gas and electricity. These elements include the region of the country that you live in, the amount of energy that you use, as well as how you choose to pay for your energy.

Below is a table to show the average energy bill for customers on a ‘standard’ energy tariff. Most energy customers will currently be on standard tariffs - in particular those who have never switched suppliers before, those who have recently moved house, or those who have automatically rolled off an alternative tariff which has now expired.

Medium House (2) £91 £273 £1,093 Continue »
Large House (3) £128 £383 £1,533 Continue »

As mentioned before, the above figures are based on standard energy tariff rates – which are typically not the cheapest available on the market. The below table demonstrates the current cheapest deals on the market.
