How do customers rate Ecotricity?

Ofgem, the UK energy regulator, has published that Ecotricity has the lowest number of complaints per 1,000 customers in the industry. This could partially be attributed to the fact that it’s still a small company, but is impressive even in comparison with other similar-sized suppliers.

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.
