Knock £50 off en­ergy bills

Daily Mail - - Money Mail - l.phillips@dai­ly­

HOUSE­HOLD­ERS can save £50 on their first en­ergy bill if they sign up to Sains­bury’s lat­est en­ergy of­fer be­fore t he end of June.

A typ­i­cal house­hold will pay £854 a year for gas and elec­tric­ity with Sains­bury’s On­line S@ver Ver­sion 6 tar­iff, ac­cord­ing to En­er­gy­helpline.

Pre­vi­ously, Npower’s Sign-on Line 18 plan was the cheap­est at an av­er­age an­nual con­sump­tion of £876 for dual fuel.

You will have to pay the £50 dis­count back if you leave within the next 12 months.

Sains­bury’s en­ergy is pro­vided by EDF. The rate is not fixed but it does guar­an­tee to stay 2 pc be­low EDF’s stan­dard tar­iff un­til the end of June next year.

The of­fer is avail­able only for dual fuel and elec­tric­ity-only cus­tomers.

Mark Todd, of the En­er­gy­helpline, says: ‘Those on their en­ergy com­pany’s stan­dard tar­iffs are typ­i­cally pay­ing around £1,200 a year — £ 300 more than the cheap­est on­line deals.’
