Has anyone looked into changing their gas and electricity supplier? I've been getting both from British Gas as that results in some form of discount but I heard reports that they are less and less competitive. Is anyone willing or able to offer an opinion on alternative suppliers?

Thanks

http://www.uswitch.com/ and http://www.switchandgive.com will do you an accurate comparison and suggest better alternate suppliers on price, and I think they let you see ratings for service etc as well.

Try Atlantic. The price comparisons are sometimes difficult because they all rely on you working out your monthly consumption based on what you think you might save by switching to a monthly direct debit. To work out what your consumption actually is involves some nifty calculations. Good luck!

Just a word of caution - have a good look at the savings, because if your experience ends up being anything like ours, you'll quickly have spent every penny saved in phone calls to both the new and old suppliers to get it sorted out!

I've gone for Juice from Npower, because the electricty they put into the national grid is windfarmed and so ecologically sound. I ahd no problems switching

I got my British Gas bill today for this quarter.
£12-99 ! Since the new combi boiler and rads were installed my usage has dropped by at least 40%.
With the old tank system I never used the timer and turned it on as required, frequently forgetting to turn it off.
