People often assume that making the energy supplier switch will be complicated and time consuming, but it can take as little as ten minutes.

  1. Use the comparison tool to find the energy supplier you want to use, or has the best deal for you. All you need to tell them is your address, current supplier and roughly how much energy you use. They’ll then show you a list of suppliers and how much money they estimate you could save.

  3. It takes 4-6 weeks to switch supplier, and once it’s complete you can sit back and watch the savings roll in.
