Switch before the big winter bills hit

This winter is expected to be the coldest since 2012/13. And cold winters are expensive – Ofgem analysis showed the cold winter in 2012/13 added an extra £90 to the average energy bill.

When you consider all the Big 6 suppliers – British Gas, EDF, E.ON, npower, SSE and ScottishPower – raised energy prices this year on their already expensive Standard Variable Tariffs, it's clear this winter will be a particularly expensive one for those who haven't switched. 

Switch now to save on your winter bills

The typical U.K. home would save over £200 a year by switching to Octopus Energy today, compared to sticking with a Big 6 variable tariff.
