    GB Energy tariff not shown on comparison sites 11th Aug 18 at 1:38 PM
    I want to see if I can avoid the 30 increase GB Energy have applied to my direct debit by switching to another supplier.


    The GB Energy tariff I am on is not shown on the comparison website though.


    The tariffs are GB Premium Energy Fix May 19 and GB Premium Energy Fix May 19


    Anyone know if they go by another name on the comparison websites?

    GB Energy don't exist anymore but are part of the Co-Op Energy group which probably explains why the comparison sites don't mention them.

    But GB Energy are still listed on a decent comparison site ran by the Citizens Advice Bureau
    https://energycompare.citizensadvice.org.uk/

    The rest can now hide tariffs/companies they don't like. But the CAB show the whole market.

    Just remember to look at your actual usage when comparing new tariffs and don't put in your direct debit amount.

    The Direct Debit amount is based on their calculations of how much you will use in average over the year and not your actual usage. So the increase could simply be they underestimated your Direct Debit amount previously.
