What should I think about before switching?

Before you switch retailers, you need to know some information about your preferences and your current power usage. You can use a recent power bill to work out how much energy you typically use, and you can determine when you use the most power based on when people are typically home. It’s also important to consider if you have or are considering installing solar panels, if using renewable energy sources is important to you, and how long you intend to stay at your current address. With this information in hand you can start comparing retailers’ offerings.
