Comparison Site Quotes

Having just done 2 different comparison site searches, I was surprised to see how different the quotes were for exactly the same details - is this normal?

For example, with exactly the same details entered, the price for BG's Click Energy 5 tarif was 1,163 with 'energyhelpline' search engine, but came in at only 865.50 with 'moneysupermarket' search engine - the payment methods were the same on each site, and the total spend per month was entered the same on each site.

I know the BG rates are due to be increased soon, but to have a 300.00 difference on 2 different sites seems bizarre - I noticed a similar trend across the other suppliers and tarif's as well.

Hope someone can clarify for me, thanks.

    To start with you should enter annual kWh figures, not your current monthly spend. Use the sites to get a league table of supplier prices and then do your own sums.
    :doh: Blue text on this forum usually signifies hyperlinks, so click on them!..:wall:
