Incumbent suppliers

If you’re looking to switch your gas or electricity provider, then you may need to know who your incumbent suppliers are. An ‘incumbent’ supplier is essentially a ‘default’ provider for your geographical region in the UK. If you’ve recently moved house, or have never switched suppliers before, then there’s a good chance you will be with your incumbent suppliers.

The incumbent electricity supplier for the West Midlands is Npower, and the incumbent gas supplier is British Gas.

This means that if you live in the areas surrounding Birmingham, Coventry, Stoke-on-Trent and the like, it’s more than likely that Npower and British Gas will be your incumbent electricity and gas suppliers, respectively.

West Midlands energy prices

The good news is that you are not obliged to stay with your incumbent gas and electricity suppliers – and there’s ample reason for you to switch away from them, too. It’s more than likely that you will be on these suppliers’ standard gas and electricity tariffs, which are typically the most expensive. See the table below for some of the best energy deals in the West Midlands now and how they compare to ‘standard’ prices:
