Switch Plan: About us

At Switch Plan, we are dedicated to the energy market in the United Kingdom.

Switching energy supplier

  • We want to become your reference for the best gas and electricity plans for you.
  • We will not only help you find the most economical deal to ensure you’re not overpaying for your energy, but we will also take into account your other requirements, such as renewable plans, dual fuel and more.
  • Whether you’re fuelling your home, your office, or any other space, you could save up to £400 a year on your energy bills.

Sounds good, right? Switching Contract

We want to make switching your energy as transparent as possible. That’s why we will answer all the questions you may have about the process, such as:

  • Who are the energy operators in your area?
  • Which type of heating is mostly used in your city?
  • What is the average kWh price in your county?
  • How to contact your energy suppliers and operators? ☎️

Plus we will answer any other information about gas and electricity in your area.

And remember, if you have any questions, queries, or concerns, you can give us a ring and our experts will walk you through it.

What types of contracts do we offer

The energy market is complex. We at Switch Plan want to provide our customers with straight-forward information around the energy market, because we believe everyone has better things to do than fill out forms, benchmark suppliers or figure out which suppliers can easily connect your home to be connected to the grid. Should you have any inquiry, we’ve put forward information on the energy suppliers in the UK market, along with the different tariffs they have on offer which include:

  • Fixed energy tariffs
  • Variable energy tariffs
  • Prepayment plans
  • Green energy tariffs
  • Economy 7 tariffs
  • Economy 10 tariffs

If your head is already spinning, don’t worry! This is why we’re here; our experts will guide you through which tariffs are best suited to your specific needs and aspirations. We continuously update our supplier information, such as new suppliers that come to market, changes to suppliers such as buyouts and transfers, and old favourites that have and excellent track record relating to consumer reviews. We take our responsibility of finding you the best energy tariffs in the market quite seriously.

What suppliers do we partners with?

Our goal is to make navigating the energy market is a simple as possible. Switch Plan references and offers comparison tools for many suppliers. Our articles provide objective answers independent of all ongoing partnerships, and have included information around suppliers that we do not currently work with so that you have an abundance of information. Nevertheless, we will mention our partners first since they are the only ones we can switch you to. We have selected the best partner available for each identified customer need such as “cheapest energy”, “greenest energy”, “excellent customer service”, “best variable energy”, etc. What we mean by the “best” is 1. those that excel in these fields and 2. have a sufficient enough customer base to be reliable.

Our compensation model is commission based, meaning that we are compensated for each subscription or energy contract transfer we make. Switch Plan is therefore an intermediary, and our partners trust us with both the administration and management of their clients’ subscriptions. We generate revenues through each contract that is signed between you and our supplier partners; this is what enables our service to be 100% free for our users and why our rates mirror those that are in the market. Switch Plan’s service is 100% free for all customers (except the cost of a local phone call that will be invoiced by your phone operator).

What is Switch Plan’s responsibility in the event of a dispute?

Both Switch Plan and its mother company papernest will only ever intervene as a third party intermediary. This means that we are not a party within the contract between the supplier and you (the customer). Should there ever be a dispute between you and one of our energy partners, papernest is absolved of all responsibility and therefore will not be involved.

We sincerely hope you enjoy your switching experience with us.

What’s our story?

Switch Plan was founded in 2020 as a subsidiary of papernest, a start-up founded in 2015 that facilitates all the contract-switching involved in moving house. Since 2015, papernest now operates in 4 different countries, including the UK, and has grown exponentially.

We launched Switch Plan because we know how stressful contract switching can seem. But with our help, it doesn’t have to be. We want to become your point of reference for anything related to gas and electricity.
