3 simple tariffs – Plus fixed gas and electricity prices
How cool is this: instead of a bewildering choice of baffling tariffs, there are just three to choose from. Because you already know they’re cheaper than the big 6 because they’ve guaranteed it, the rest is very straightforward.
The first tariff lets you fix your charges short term. The second lets you fix things for longer. The third is a standard variable tariff that changes along with energy prices. But whatever happens to First Utility’s prices, they will always be lower than the Big 6 energy suppliers.
Here’s what First Utility says about the way they keep their prices below the rest:
The price promise relates to the following competitor tariffs (or any replacement tariffs as that company’s Standard Tariff): British Gas – Clear and Simple, E-ON – Energy Plan, Scottish Power – Standard, npower – Standard no standing charge, EDF – Standard (Variable), SSE – Standard Energy in each case as offered directly by the relevant company with a Direct Debit payment method and paperless billing.
On a weekly basis we will compare the prices of this tariff against those listed above. The calculation will be based on average usage of 3,300kWh of electricity and 16,500kWh of gas on a national basis. If the cheapest average bill value based on average usage on a national basis of any of these tariffs falls below ours, then we will reduce our tariff to be lower than that average bill value within 60 days of your next Billing Cycle. These tariff comparisons will be listed on our website.
It’s good to know there’s a price promise behind your energy supply, and even better to know you can fix your payments so you know where you’re at financially.
What about the future of energy prices?
Only one thing is certain: high energy prices are here to stay and they’re unlikely to go down.
Sadly, the only way is up. Happily, First Utility are here to help you keep the costs well below the Big 6’s excesses. Time to switch? We think so.
