Is it a good idea to stick with one of the Big Six?
The Big Six aren’t always the cheapest option when comparing energy prices, although bigger companies can sometimes afford to be more competitive with their pricing.
Energy is energy. Regardless of who you buy it from, it will come to your pipes and switches the same way. Which provider you choose is all down to personal preference, cost and customer service.
The Big Six are big because they have the most customers – but much of this is due to how long they’ve been around for, or which companies they’ve merged with, rather than because they deliver the best service and prices. These days more of our customers seem to be switching away from the Big Six rather than to them. See who the biggest winners and losers are in switching in our monthly Energy Snapshot.
