Guides on Using & Switching Energy

In order to make sure you're getting the very best deal on your gas and electricity supply, you need to know as much as you can. So if you want to know your prepayment meters from your smart meters, or your Big Six from you small challengers, you're in the right place:


  • How can I find the best deals on gas and electricity?

    Finding the best energy deals with USave is incredibly simple. All you need to do is enter your postcode in the box you’ll find here. Once you’ve done that, you’ll need to tell us a bit about your current supply including who your current provider is and, ideally, how much you’re spending and using each month.

    Next, you’ll be shown a selection of all of the best deals available in your area, and how much you’d save by switching to each. You can see all the key details of the tariffs here to help you decide. Once you’ve picked one, just click through and follow the on-screen instructions, and you’re switch will commence.

  • How long will it take to switch energy suppliers?

    The initial process of finding and selecting a deal shouldn’t take more than around 10 minutes. Once you’re set up, the actual switch should take no more than 17 days. Your new supplier will handle all of the admin, including talking to your current supplier to arrange the handover.

    You’ll have a 14-day cooling off period starting from when you put the switch through during which you can cancel it is, for any reason, you change your mind.

  • What if I change my mind?

    Once you’ve decided to switch and have selected a tariff, you’ll enter a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period. During this time, if you decide you actually don’t want to switch, or that you want to switch to someone else entirely, you are free to cancel to process by talking to your new supplier.

  • How much money can I save by switching?

    This will depend on several factors, including how much you’re spending now and, most importantly, the kind of tariff you’re currently on. If you’re on a Standard Variable Tariff (which is most likely the case if: you’ve just moved in to a property, your fixed rate deal has finished, or you don’t know what tariff you’re on) then savings can be in the hundreds.

  • Can I switch from a prepayment meter to a standard meter?

    Yes, and you’re likely to get a much better deal if you do. However, often people have prepayment meters installed due to arrears from previous energy tariffs, or issues with credit ratings. If this is the case then you may have difficulty switching to a standard meter unless you have cleared your arrears and improved your credit rating.

  • Can I switch if I’m in debt to my current supplier?

    When the switch goes through, you will be sent a final bill by your current supplier detailing any remaining payments due. For the most part, any debts will simply be included on this bill and won’t hinder the switch (though this will be up to the new supplier). However, if your debts to your current supplier exceed £500, then you’ll need to pay at least a chunk of it back before you’ll be allowed to switch.

  • Which suppliers offer green energy?

    Nowadays, with more and more of a focus on environmental issues across all sectors, it’s no surprise that there are an increasing number of energy supplier that specialise in providing clean electricity and cleaner gas. Most providers will try and tilt their energy mix towards renewables, but there are a few who’s electricity is totally green, including: Bulb, Ecotricity, Good Energy, Green Star and LoCO2.

  • I’ve recently moved into a new flat/house and received a huge bill, what can I do?

    When you move into a new property, you will almost invariably be placed on what’s known as a deemed tariff. This is a standard variable tariff and is the most expensive kind available. So unless you switch right away, you’re going to be paying over the odds for your energy supply.

    To make matters worse, unless you set up a new account, your first bill will be based on an estimate – this means that the energy company guess how much they think you might be using and bill you accordingly.

    If you’ve received a massive bill for your first month, the first thing you should do is switch right away. Your new supplier will ask for meter readings at some point during the process, and this should correct any overblown estimates. However, it’s a good idea to get in touch with your old supplier and give them up to date meter readings just to make sure – they’ll then send you an amended bill based on what you’ve actually used.

  • What is an economy 7 tariff?

    Economy 7 tariffs use a differential meter to charge a different price for energy at peak and off-peak times. The name, Economy 7, refers to the 7 hours during the night when your energy will be cheaper. Economy 10 tariffs are also available and work in much the same way.

  • What is a smart meter?

    A smart meter is a type of energy meter that tracks and sends usage data to the provider in real time. There are various benefits to smart meters, including no more estimated readings inflating your bills, and the ability to monitor your own energy usage in real time and adjust it accordingly to save power and money.
