Understandably, you might prefer to stick with a familiar brand, even paying a bit more for the priviliege. But we reckon that would be a mistake and here is why...
1. They’re often cheaper than the big 6 Six energy firms, that’s British Gas, EDF, Eon, nPower, Scottish Power and SSE
2. The energy regulator Ofgem vets all the electricity and gas suppliers in Great Britain so smaller companies follow exactly the same rules as the big 6. They are just as safe and secure as each other.
You’ll get exactly the same gas and electricity out of the same pipes and wires as you do at present. So, you can switch to any company that comes up on your quote with complete confidence.
