UK Energy Supplier Reviews

Read our Energy Supplier reviews and see the pros and cons of each before you switch.

More and more of the 27 million homes in the UK are taking control of their energy bills and switching each year. There are over 50 energy suppliers in the UK that you can turn to for your gas and/or electricity. Comparison sites have made comparing energy prices easy, but how much do you actually know about the suppliers you could switch to?

The UK energy market is becoming increasingly diverse with new energy companies popping up and disappearing all the time. This helps keep the market competitive and is great that consumers have so much choice, but the number of options can be overwhelming!

We’ve put together to help you when choosing a new energy supplier! Sure comparison sites can give you a good indication of who will be the cheapest supplier but what is that energy suppliers’ customer service like? How green is their energy? Are they right for you?

We collate all this information into a comprehensive review, so you have access to everything you need to quickly assess if an energy supplier is right for you.

We’re not an alternative to comparison sites but instead aimed to be used along side them, to help you get the best deal for you.

Questions before you switch?

We don't just write reviews!

We also answer all your questions when it comes to switching suppliers, as well as providing guides on how to get the most from both your energy supplier and your energy.


Many people don’t realise how much they could save and how easy it is to switch. 

No, when you switch energy supplier you will not be without gas or electricity for any time at all. The switch all takes place behind the scenes and the first thing you’ll probably know about being with a new supplier is when they send you an email to tell you so!

Most switches will take place within 3 weeks. If a supplier is part of the Energy Switch Guarantee, then amongst other benefits, this guarantees a reliable and hassle-free switch in 21 days. You can read more about the Energy Switch Guarantee here.

This depends on your tariff with your existing supplier and is definitely worth checking before you decide to switch. If you are on a fixed tariff and within the original term, it’s likely you will have to pay an ‘exit fee’.

According to Ofgem, the average household can save £300 per year by switching gas and electricity supplier. The price isn’t the only consideration when switching supplier however, which is where our reviews come in handy!
