Save £100's on your gas and electricity bills
Gas and electricity prices went up by a whopping 42% in 2008, meaning that the average household had an extra £381 to pay. The good news is that Good Energy - a ‘green’ electricity supplier – has now dropped its prices.

New tariffs come into effect from 31 March 2009, with the average household using a standard electricity supplier standing to save around £36. However, following price cuts of 7.5% from Good Energy, the typical customer can save £40 a year!

With the greener options on the market now competitively priced, this is good time to compare the market for the best electricity quote. Visit USwitch to compare green energy plans.
