Details of each tariff have been supplied by the energy providers and are correct as of June 2020, although these are subject to change or removal by the providers. Quotes include an average unit electricity cost (p/kWh), sourced directly from the energy supplier or through marketing material. If this was unavailable, quotes were calculated based off of a small family in a medium-sized property. Peak/Off-peak pricing displayed is part of a standard EV tariff.

Individual quotes may vary based on location, household size, and other factors. It is highly recommended to get a personalised quote before deciding on the best energy provider for you, including taking into consideration peak/off-peak rates and standing charges. Visit the individual energy suppliers’ websites for further information, including obtaining personalised quotes and terms and conditions.
