Energy suppliers in England
With the number of energy providers available to choose from, choosing the right supplier can seem a little daunting.
Fortunately, with our expertise and assistance, we’re able to help you find the best value energy tariff for your business.
To get you started, we’ve put together this guide to the range of energy suppliers available in England.
How many energy suppliers are there in England?
The main energy suppliers in England are referred to as the ‘Big Six’.
These are the nation’s largest energy providers, supplying over 50 million customers with gas and electricity. These companies include:
- Scottish Power
- British Gas
In total, the Big Six supply 90% of the entire UK population.
Even though their dominance of the market might suggest it’s sensible to opt for a Big Six supplier, it’s still absolutely worth exploring the tariffs available from smaller suppliers who can offer you a fantastic deal on your energy.
For this reason, we compare the following smaller suppliers to make sure you’re not missing out on any lesser known energy tariffs.
– Dual Energy
– Haven Power
– Opus Energy
