How do British Gas tariffs compare in Middlesbrough?

British Gas is part of the Big 6 suppliers. These juggernauts are famour for their size and historical domination of the British energy market but not for their low prices. Nevertheless, there are some great opportunities to make on some British Gas tariff if you hit at the right place at the right time.

Let's see how these compare to the rest of the market.

How can I ring British Gas in Middlesbrough?

With these estimates in mind, we can now ask ourselves how to position these tariffs vs the government established "Energy Price Cap". As a reminder the energy price cap is a tool for controlling the cost of gas and electricity in the UK. It is wielded by industry regulator Ofgem and serves customers who rarely or never change energy tariffs. The headline rate changes twice a year and is expressed as an annual cost in pounds. It is based on a typical consumer (TDCV) using a ‘medium’ amount of gas and electricity each year (12,000 kWh for Gas, 2,900 kWh for Electricity).

Note that this cap is far from being unique. Indeed the EPC varies depending on your location but also on the type of tariff you are on. There is therefore a default tariff cap (or safeguard tariff) for the standard variable tariff, the prepayment meter cap for the four million prepayment customers in the UK and the "other payment method" cap for alternative billing methods. Each of those exist for electricity, gas and E7.

Please find in the table bellow, the current Energy Price Cap for Yorkshire as it has been established from October 2021 to April 2022:

Fuel Type Standard Credit Price Cap Prepayment Price Cap Other Payment Methods Price Cap
Electricity £ 686.6732258 £ 646.5596774 £ 641.7325806
Gas £ 586.47 £ 570.55 £ 545.98

In this second table you will find the equivalent tariffs for E7. We separated them because these are based on the E7 TDCV which is slightly higher with an average electric consumption of 4,200 kWh (vs 2,900 kWh).

Fuel Type Standard Credit Price Cap Prepayment Price Cap Other Payment Methods Price Cap
Electricity £ 907.9 £ 855.75 £ 851.34
