    I suggest instead of rubbishing what I've said try for yourself and i truly believe you will be back and confirm what I've said...paying quarterly dd does for some reason bring your bill down.
    Well, I guess we both know that isn't going to be happening... :)

    British Gas are currently offering free homecare for one year when you switch energy to them. Does anyone know if this is for new homecare customers only, or whether exisiting home care customers can take advantage of this?

    If you look at the tariff details it should be clear, all of the similar tariffs I've looked at from BG make it clear that the offer is not available to existing Homecare customers...

    Changed to British Gas Green deal 2021...19.124 kWh and 26.822 standing charge. est usage with this tariff £652.48 per annum.
    I am currently getting bills of over £90 per month with virtually everything in the house turned off and its summer.
    On your forum its showing BG 18.07 kWh and standing charge 22.69, both lower than my current, but annual cost £715 per annum.
    This is since having a smart meter installed. BG say I must have faulty appliances!! I am using virtually no energy (I live alone).
    Everything on standby is turned off and I have energy bulbs. Can you suggest anything??? I am desperate to leave BG before I get crippling bills this winter.

    When you switch, you're supposed to choose the supplier at the top of the list if you want the lowest price.  Did you choose the one at the bottom? 12p/kWh and 13p S/C are the sorts of figures you should be aiming for.

    What is your actual annual consumption in (kWhs not £)   Working backwards I reckon 2750 kWhs
    Using Gerry1's 12p and 13p  you would pay under £400
    Never pay on an estimated bill

    I'm on BG's energy and boiler cover May 2021 and just checked on Uswitch  to see if I could get a cheaper deal.
    And the result.

    You can’t make any savings!

    Don't be too sure.
    Did you try separate fuels?  Did you try a wider market search on any other websites?  Some even have exclusive broken drum offers !
