As you may have heard on the news, the UK energy market is currently under an immense amount of stress as a result of a global gas shortage driving up costs and putting several energy suppliers out of business. To learn more about this and stay updated on a daily basis you can read our page on the UK energy crisis.

If you’re currently thinking about switching to Shell Energy, finding out a little more about the supplier and their services could help you make up your mind. Here, we take a closer look at Shell Energy, its prices, plans and reviews to help you decide if this is the UK’s energy supplier for you.

Shell Energy Tariffs and Prices

The Shell name and logo are familiar to drivers everywhere, but perhaps fewer are aware that the oil giant is also a domestic energy supplier (after taking over First Utility). Also, despite having their roots very much in petroleum, Shell has a wide range of energy tariffs that use 100% renewable electricity. When choosing a new energy supplier, it’s essential to choose a company that provides a diverse range of tariffs to suit your needs, has affordable rates, and offers reliable customer service.

Shell Energy offers a fairly comprehensive range of variable tariffs as well as a single variable rate tariff. All of the tariffs feature 100% renewable electricity, and one also features carbon-neutral electricity and gas. All of these tariffs also offer exclusive rewards with Shell Go+, the company’s rewards system. If you find that you usually use Shell fuels on the road, you may find that you get some great rewards by using the company for your domestic fuel as well. You can even get discounted broadband with Shell’s tariffs.

Shell Energy business tariffs

Shell prides itself on offering affordable green tariffs for business customers. Shell Energy is able to offer business tariffs to microbusinesses, SMBs and enterprise-level companies.

Shell does reveal, however, the names of their business tariffs:

  • Fixed All-Inclusive SME Plan- For businesses that spend less than £50k per year on energy.
  • Fixed All-Inclusive Contract- For larger businesses that prioritise budget certainty.
  • Pass-Through Contract- For larger businesses that expect greater cost transparency.

Companies can apply via Shell Energy’s Business Tariff page.

Why is it so difficult to find actual tariff rates on your website, already unimpressed! You give average cost to average user with no further relevant info so that anyone who has a brain can work it out.

You have elected to take over my account from Green - there is no way am I switching to you. In keeping with the rest of the crooked big six energy prices your Economy 7 prices are UNJSTIFIEBLY sky high. If other smaller providers can sustainably offer HALF what you are charging why CAN'T YOU?? It just shows how crooked how you are. I in Central Government am currently working with my MP to have just one national energy provider operating in the public sector and put an end to these rip off rates and put a stop to the FARCE of having distressed customers seeking a FAIRER REALISTICALLY PRICED TARIFF only to switch and have the smaller honest well meaning firm go bust. BY HEAVEN THIS SILLY NONSENSE HAS GOT TO STOP!
