    To work that out we would need your annual usage figures in kWh for electricity and gas if you have it, your energy provider, tariff if you are not on the SVR (eg are you on E7) and the energy region you live in.

    Thank you will look it up . I know we are with E ON Next but they aren’t putting anyone on direct debit at the moment cos their systems can’t do the credit checks needed to swap .

    DD will cetainly be cheaper than PP. In fact the prepayment customers had a rise of £116 this month. They will also get the 20% rise in April.

    Those with EDF in the Eastern, South West and Yorkshire areas might not all agree with you.

    As things stand, everyone will get the 20% increase in April. However, perhaps more relevantly, nobody has had “a rise of £116” as such - that would suggest a flat rate charge that had been applied. The only increase that has happened this month is an increase on the unit rates for some customers to bring them into the line with the EPG rates - and an increase on unit charges will amount to a different sum for everyone it affects.
