E.ON Go Online Tariff - How Much Could You Save?

We moved into our home exactly one year ago and when we moved I just stuck with the gas and electricity supplier that the old lady who lived here before us had. I always thought it would be a hassle to change so I just stuck with the current provider but over the past year, I have realised we spend a lot on our energy bill each month. We are spending £120 a month for gas and electric for our three-bed semi, which is a big expense. We do try and save energy wherever we can, we have energy saving light bulbs in every room and we turn things off when we are not using them but could I save money by switching providers?

Well, E.ON recently asked me to check out their website and get a quote to see I could save by switching to them. E.ON's tariffs are different to other suppliers in that their tariffs are not 'one size fits all'. They are tailor-made to suit your families needs and energy uses, whether that is by 2-year-fixed deals, Cap and Track or the new Go Online deal. By switching to an E.ON tariff I could save up to £200 per year compared to the Ofgem national average. 

I thought that it would be really complicated but the website was so quick and easy to use, you just added a few details and within minutes you were giving a quote. I found out that I could save £10 per month by switching, which when you add it up over a year is £120 and what I am currently paying per month for my energy.

Ten pounds per month doesn't sound a lot but next year I am on a saving mission for my upcoming wedding and that £10 per month (or £120 per year) would pay for one of my bridesmaid dresses. When it is put like that and I realise what I could buy it makes me realise that it is a good saving. A few other bloggers also checked to see if they could save and they saved between £284 to £22 and you can see what they would spend the money on here

I always thought that switching energy suppliers would be a bit of a hassle but that is not the case at all. You can switch from the comfort of your own home and you won't experience any disruption to your service and nothing at all will change other than who your bill comes from and the fact your bill will be cheaper! 

What would you spend the extra money on? I would love to know in the comments below.

  3. I’m guilty of just letting it roll over each year but we moved last month and I did actually make sure we were ok the best deal. It is definitely worth checking each year.

  5. I think £10 a month is brilliant, especially when it means you can put it towards your wedding day.
