Is Bulb cheap?

Something to remember

There is no single cheapest energy supplier out there, only the cheapest provider for you and your usage requirements. If it gets confusing, you can always come back and consult finder.com’s energy pages and guides!

How do customers rate Bulb?

Ofgem, the UK energy regulator, publish facts and figures surrounding energy usage throughout the year, but since Bulb is a new entrant to the energy market, it has not yet been included in these independent reports. In the meantime, you can find out what customers think by checking out Bulb’s customer reviews on Trustpilot.

Is Bulb green?

Bulb uses 100% renewable energy.

Can I get a smart meter with Bulb?

At the time of writing, smart meters are not available to all Bulb customers – only a select number of customers who have entered into a smart meter trial currently have access. Bulb have indicated that they intend to roll out smart meters to all of their customers in 2018.

What is a 'dual fuel' tariff?

With one of these tariffs you’ll get both your gas and electricity from the same supplier. This makes life a lot easier. There’s one bill, one direct debit, one number to call if you need to speak to someone. A dual fuel tariff could save you money, but it’s not necessarily the cheapest option.

In some cases, it’s still cheaper to have your gas and electricity provided by separate suppliers.
