Don't go NPower though ... we had loads of problems with them and I think we weren't the only ones. We're with Scottish Power now who I believe are a good mix between fairly competitive but good service.

We find Atlantic Gas and Electricity the cheapest and the best. We've just received a £65 cheque from them for 'loyalty' and paying by direct debit!!

Was just going to say, when we compared prices Scottish Power also came out tops.

I hate Atlantic. They hijacked my gas and electricity after I asked them for a quote . It was higher than my original supplier so turned them down, but they went ahead and transferred me anyway.

2 years later I still keep getting final demands from them even though I was never a customer. Have had £150 compensation out of them though

southern electric are great, I checked on uswitch and no one can beat them

anymore suggestions...looking at scottish power atm

I hate npower - and have told them so - but they still keep ringing us trying to persuade us to go back . If they can afford to give a £50 dual fuel discount, maybe they should be charging less in the first place?

I liked Scottishpower, we're still with them for gas, but have switched to ecotricity for green electricity.

i am just about to sign up with scottish power...
through uswitch...
do i need to inform current providers?/

we use basicpower for electricity, they're good. We have electric underfloor heating etc. and no gas at all so finding a cheap electricity provider was important - before we switched we were with npower who were absolutely dreadful to deal with and cost a third more than basicpower.
