Times are hard at the moment. Coronavirus has caused many of us financial difficulties as businesses close or we cannot work and earn.
If you are struggling to pay your energy bills due to the pandemic then you should contact your current energy supplier to let them know your situation. Most of them are offering various help options for those who cannot pay - the type of help on offer varies between provider so check the help sections on their website or give them a call if you need to speak to someone.
If you are on a standard credit meter, you don't need to worry about being cut off as that practice has been completely suspended for the time being.
If you are on a prepay meter and cannot get out to top up your energy then many suppliers are offering alternatives. For example, Bulb can post keys and cards loaded with credit to your home if there is no other alternative. You will need to call them to arrange this.
If you're just looking to lower your bills then now is a great time to switch. International oil prices have plummeted meaning that as well as petrol prices on the forecourt, energy prices are also on the decrease. There are some great energy deals out there as prices haven't been this low in a long while. It is a great time to see if you can save.
I recommend doing a whole-of-market comparison and look at all factors including price and customer ratings. Remember that if you decide to switch to Bulb, they will pay your current exit fees if you have them AND you can get an extra £50 bill credit if you use this link.
I think Bulb is a great renewable energy company. One of the good guys in the market with 5-star customer service. If you sign up using my link, we both get up to £50. Get a quote first and see if Bulb is right for you.
