At PET we are always on the lookout for new and smarter energy tariffs. We willl keep you updated on the latest tariffs and let you know if switching could be a smart move.

The energy landscape is changing after a period of volatility caused by global events, and new tariffs are popping up with different benefits. Our team stays up-to-date with these changes so we can provide you with the most relevant advice. We’ll analyse the advantages and disadvantages of different tariffs and give you recommendations based on your situation.

If we spot a tariff that matches your energy usage, lifestyle, and financial goals, we will let you know right away. We will keep you in touch with the potential benefits, such as cost savings, energy efficiency, and sustainability factors. 

A quick look at the types of tariffs available in the UK:

  1. Fixed-Rate Tariffs: These tariffs offer a stable unit price for a specific period, so you know exactly what to expect.
  2. Variable Rate Tariffs: The unit price can change based on market conditions. If you are happy to take the risk and monitor the market, you can end up paying significantly less for your energy before fixed rate tariffs catch up with market price.
  3. Time-of-Use Tariffs: These tariffs encourage using electricity during off-peak hours when demand is low. You can take advantage of lower rates and potentially save on your bills. Economy 7 and Economy 10 Tariffs have been around for 50 years and used two energy meters to charge less for energy at night.  Now smart meters have allowed suppliers to be more creative with tariffs such as Flux from Octopus and the many EV tariffs available. 
  4. Green Energy Tariffs: With green energy tariffs, the electricity you use is generated from renewable sources, supporting a cleaner and more sustainable future.
  5. Smart Tariffs: Smart tariffs use technology like smart meters to provide more flexible pricing. You can take advantage of real-time energy demand and choose cheaper or greener periods to use electricity.
