EMERGENCY UPDATE – In view of the emerging crisis in the UK energy market some of the content on this site is out of date. We are working hard to update the relevant pages. IN THE MEANTIME, our energy comparison service is operating as normally as is possible in the circumstances. Unlike other energy price comparison websites, we are not leaving customers stranded. However, we are not switching customers currently as we would recommend that, for now, you stay put. When the situation changes we will be the first to let you know.
