Did anyone see Watchdog and Martin Lewis on Good Morning Britain this morning? They were discussing energy providers and comparison sites. Think it's about time we looked at our provider/tariff.

Can anyone recommend their provider. Are some of the cheaper/smaller companies okay really?! Any tips?

Thank you :-)

Tariffs are.regional so I'm afraid such info is not.much use. Also the best tariff depends on your usage.

Energy prices are rising and the smaller firms may go bust. Make sure you don't pay in advance or build up credit.

You need to sign up to the MSE energy club
(MSE = Money Saving Expert, the website Martin Lewis set up). Enter your gas/electricity usage (should be on your bills) and they'll recommend cheapest tariffs. Switched from Atlantic to British Gas and saved £300 per year, I thought we were on the cheapest tariff but the energy club gets you access to fixed energy rates which means good savings. Free to join and a no brainer really.
