Energy giants are warming to competitive deals

The big six energy companies are fighting back with competitive fixed-rate tariffs. Following months of deals from smaller energy providers undercutting the giants, uSwitch says there’s now evidence of better offers coming through the traditional channels.

In fact, the launch of SSE’s ‘SSE Direct’ tariff means that the big six now hold five out of ten spots in the best-buy tables.

Sainsbury’s Energy, powered by British Gas, is fifth with a fixed deal of £1,099 until October 2015. SSE has cut its cheapest tariff to £1,029 to grab seventh, while EDF, npower and ScottishPower fill the eighth, ninth and tenth spots.

However, top of the table of the best energy deals is still the small supplier Extra Energy, with its “Fresh Fixed Price Nov 2015 v2” tariff at £984.
