    Prepaying is the most expensive way to buy electricity. Almost aĺl suppliers will be cheaper. Look at tese sites.

    I am with energia who had the best rates when I switched, i cannot be sure that is still true. You can pay a fixed monthly rate with most suppliers that makes it easier to budget. Look at all charges such as the unit rate and other standing charges. You should be able to save a considerable amount.

    You will be able to start the process in advance.

    22 May. If initiate the switch before 22 May you could be in breach of contract with your current supplier.
