Just a quick note on Bristol Energy as I have been with them for nearly a year now and have to say I've had no issues what so ever and my energy bill are the lowest they have ever been. Took a while to switch from BG but that was more to do with BG I think. I don't get no calls from them or letters which is fine by me and I probably spend around 20-25 a month for both my gas and electricity on a meter while living in a 3 bed town house with 2 kids. Beat that British Gas!!!
You can keep your smart meter if you already have one but we’ll require manual meter reads in the meantime.

I wonder how Bristol Energy calculate your estimated annual usage?
They have mine as:
Electricity 3,285 kWh per year
Gas 4,347 kWh per year
I calculate them as:
Electricity 1,250 kWh per year
Gas 5,900 kWh per year
So both estimates are wrong, despite monthly meter readings being provided (sometimes twice monthly). They then make an assumption you will move to a variable rate tariff after your fixed term ends. This has resulted in my monthly payment going up from £31 to £57 per month.
Which means when I leave (which is inevitable these days), I'll end up with a big credit balance that they will have to refund me.
