Single Fuel vs. Dual Fuel

*Between 1 July and 31 December 2020, people who have switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with Uswitch saved an average of £216

The domestic energy market moved towards offering cheaper dual fuel tariffs a few years back offering discounts to customers taking both their gas and electricity from the same supplier. However, we’ve seen a turn of events as smaller independent suppliers, often operating in one area i.e. gas, are undercutting the incumbent supplier (e.g. British Gas) to acquire customers and drive competition. As a result, it’s created an opportunity for customers to seek further savings on their energy bills – up to a further £18 a year in some regions.

There are benefits of taking a dual fuel tariff in that you only have one supplier to deal with but equally saving more money and having a clearer line of sight on your single fuel costs may also appeal.
