“Dodging bullets shot by those energy companies”

Written on: 16/07/2012 by Exasper8ed (1 review written)

Thanks to Souhail at uSwitch I've managed to dump e.on and it looks like I'll be saving over £600 a year on my energy bills. Although e.on's plan I had is called 'FIXED PRICE 5' apparently the payments you make are actually determined by units used not amounts paid per month. Perhaps they need to consider changing the name of their plan as it does not seem to me to be an accurate trade description. So there I was thinking that, for 2 years, my energy payments were sorted when I get a 'review' letter which tells me that they'll be taking £252 a month from me instead of £200. After the worst 6 months weather in the UK on record and just £99 in debit going into the 'warmer' months, I am to be punished by being told they'll be taking an additional £52 per month going forward - a 26% increase. Marvellous, I don't think. With just a few minutes of chat with Souhail at uSwitch, I am looking forward to a far better, cheaper, cleaner alternative with EDF's Blue+ Price Promise at £145.66 per month. Thank you uSwitch. Much impressed. Much appreciated. I feel like I will still need to continue to watch for the next bullets to dodge though. I'll eat my hat if this is the end of energy companies taking for a ride those with little internet savvy or ability or time to figure out their ruses.
