Energy tariffs ending in April: switch now!

Eight fixed energy tariffs come to an end at the end of April, so thousands of households need to move quickly to avoid seeing their bills increase.

When a fixed tariff comes to an end, the supplier will move you onto their standard tariff. These are almost always the worst tariffs on offer; the prospect of moving onto the standard tariff should be the spur to get you to shop around for a new deal.

In fairness, of the eight energy tariffs coming to an end this month, two of them will actually see customers spend less by moving onto the standard tariff, as the table below explains.

Prices based on average consumption as measured by Ofgem of 13,500kWh of gas and 3,200kWh of electricity and a customer paying by monthly direct debit including VAT.

As you can see, average households are looking at bill increases of as much as £142. So if you're on one of these tariffs, now is the perfect time to find a new, cheap energy tariff.
