In a normal world, we’d be helping you to compare and switch energy suppliers. We’re now in the midst of an energy crisis and it’s uncertain when switching (if ever) will come back.
Energy Angels will keep working on behalf of consumers to help to save money on rising energy bills.
If energy comparison and switching becomes available, we’ll let you know. These deals may only be available for short periods, so sign up to receive our alerts today. We’ll never sell your data and will only contact you when we can give you help and advice on saving money.
