    AVRO Energy vs Cheap Energy Club. Quotations 13th Sep 17 at 9:56 PM
    at MSE Cheap Energy Club I did a comparison based on:
    7,000 kWh Gas, 2,000 kWh Elec per year.
    I found that quotes by Avro Energy were higher than the figures by MSE.

    MSE quote £563 / year, £47 / month
    Avro quote £576.71 / year. £49 / month

    Standing Charges:
    at Avro 18.9 (gas) 18.9 (elec)
    at MSE 17.85 (gas) 17.85 (elec)

    Unit Rates:
    at Avro 2.788 (gas) 12.18 (elec)
    at MSE 2.746 (gas) 12.023 (elec)

    I have a similar problem; MSE energy club top pick highlights Avro's simple and supreme tariff, but Avro website gives (more expensive) quote for the simple and connected tarrif without any options I can see to access an alternative tarriff.
    I've emailed energyclub@moneysavingexpert.com with my details and linking to this thread...hoping someone can include me in the answer!

    I am a customer with Avro - I called them today to switch tariff from Simple and Celebrate and was only offered the Simple and Connected Tariff - no mention made of the Simple and Supreme which appears to be cheaper - I have emailed customer support asking to be changed

    Simple and Supreme
    Unit rate 2.615p per kWh
    Standing charge £62.05/yr
    Unit rate 11.450p per kWh
    Standing charge £62.05/yr
    (all rates ex. VAT)

    Simple and Connected
    Unit rate 2.655p per kWh
    Standing charge £65.70/yr
    Unit rate 11.600p per kWh
    Standing charge £65.70/yr
    (all rates ex. VAT)

    MSE quote for Avro Simple and Supreme has now been increased from £563 per year to £577 per year, which is inline with the quote by Avro.

    Cheapest one for my usage is now Green Network Energy Italian Touch.
    But unfortunately, their website found my address for electricity but not for gas. And it will not allow me to manually enter the address for gas (which is the same) and proceed to next stage.
    Weird!

    I also had this problem. Re-checking today simple and supreme isn't showing up in my MSE comparison. Cheapest is still avro but the different tariff and bit more expensive tariff .

    Really? If you check avro's website they have all the historical tariff info and it shows that Simple and Supreme is exactly the same as the newer Simple and Connected. Same standing charge & same unit prices.
