Benefits of switching gas and electricity suppliers

Great deals on websaver 8

Switch to the new energy tariff

The independent price comparison website www.switchomatic.co.uk has commented on today’s British Gas profits’ announcement by advising consumers to “stop moaning” and start shopping around for money-saving deals as this is the only way to get the best deal simply by using www.switchomatic.co.uk energy comparison service.

The advice comes as British Gas announced the cheapest gas and electricity deal on the market – the Websaver 8 online tariff – which is available through www.switchomatic.co.uk and another price comparison website.

Switchomatic statement on British Gas interim results and new cheapest energy deal

This is not the day to beat up British Gas. The company is one of the few British success stories in a difficult market and its performance contrasts with the disaster of BP’s fall from grace not least taken into consideration the disaster for the company in the US.

“British Gas has led the field with price cuts over the last 18 months and it would not have attracted 223,000 new customers if it was charging too much. The company now has the cheapest electricity and dual fuel for standard customers and its online tariff is the cheapest in the market although you are urged to compare and switch via the www.switchomatic.co.uk website.

“Like all energy companies, British Gas has benefited from a double whammy of the coldest winter in more than 30 years and low wholesale gas prices and we would expect to see other strong performances from other suppliers in the near future.”

“There is no point moaning and doing nothing when you can make savings of over £300 in a matter of minutes by signing up to an online tariff.”

* British Gas has unveiled the cheapest energy deal on the market on the day it announced profits of £585 million.

The company’s dual fuel Websaver 8 online tariff, available through www.switchomatic.co.uk and another price comparison website works out at £849 with £50 cashback – this is £301 a year cheaper than the average energy deal in the UK and £368 a year cheaper than the typical bill for someone who has never switched.
