Just switched/Price Capping

slee497 Forumite Posts: 3 Newbie

I've just switched from Southern to N Power after visiting Uswitch, now Martin is advising us to get a capped plan with an energy provider due to predicted energy hikes. Any advice would be appreciated!

    Yeah, switch again in a months time.

    Or if you have literally just done the switch (last 7 days) then just cancel it as you'll be in your cooling off period

    It's a difficult one for us, do we switch now as we've only just switched, if we switch now we'll be paying over £140 a year more than now, but then the prices may increase, but the capped tariffs are only until 2009, if there are ones that price fix for longer then they are a lot lot dearer.

    We did well out of EDF with their online 1 tariff we had from March 2005, and by the time EDF were letting people switch from their current online tariff to another, we had switched as they refused to let us go from V1 to V5.
