1. Check your contract end dates.
During the lockdown, 1 in 6 customers will have fallen on to out of contract rates, which can be up to 80% more expensive.
2. Check your appliances, heating, and AC.
Especially those on standby or which may be on a cycle. Also check for any food in drawers, cupboards and fridges that may go out of date.
3. Send a meter read to your supplier.
To stop estimated billing (which could be much higher than the true figures) and allow suppliers to bill you at your reduced usage due to the lockdown.
4. Fix a lower priced contract.
See if you can save money by fixing a lower priced contract now – you can do this even if you are still in a contract today.
5. Switch to a low or no standing charge tariff.
Think about switching to a low or no standing charge tariff. You will then only pay for the amount you use and not the standing charge.
