Which electricity provider in Sudbury is the best?

While it may not make sense immediately, there is no direct answer as to which is the best energy provider in Sudbury, there are actually many different ways 'best' can be interpreted. All customers have unique personal experiences as they deal with their electricity or gas supplier. Having said that, when enough customers seem to have the same experiences with a particular company repeatedly, it's pretty fair to use this as a reliable metric for identifying what suppliers are better than others.

We believe that proper due diligence and current customer insights are essential for identifying which are the great suppliers and which ones are bad. Suppliers that are great tend to go the extra mile for their customers and a result seems to consistently leave them satisfied. While there are a tremendous amount of factors that can go into a customer's opinion of their energy providers, such as reliability, price, responsiveness, or professionalism, as a result, we find that some of the most insightful customer feedback can be found on professional review websites, such as Trustpilot.

How to make your energy bill cheaper in Sudbury

Moving can be expensive, and now that you've arrived in Sudbury, it may be a good idea to consider how you can cut costs associated with your monthly utilities.

Below you can find our favourite tips and tricks on how you can save a hefty amount on your regular utility bills:

  • Cut down on your consumption; if you can hang dry clothes rather than use the dryer, only turn on the aircon when you need it, and unplug items when you aren't using them.
  • Convert to an Economy 7 Meter: E7 Meters offer cheaper electricity rates at off-peak times like at night, so if that's when you use the most power you could save a lot!
  • Install energy-saving lightbulbs.
  • Don't crank up the heat, even if it is cold outside.
  • Check your new home's EPC rating. This will tell you how energy efficient your home is, if it is low, then you could consider installing additional insulation or double-paned windows which allow less heat to escape.
  • Confirm that you are using energy-efficient home appliances, regularly used items like refrigerators, washers and dryers should have a high-efficiency rating. Upgrading these appliances may be expensive, but the savings will be noticeable over time.
