Introducing 'Cestria Energy Angels'

With the rising costs of energy, it is becoming more difficult to heat our homes, and keep our bills affordable. By comparing energy suppliers, you can save up to £420 a year on your utility bills.

To do a comparison, all you need is a recent utility bill (your annual statement is best, but you can use any recent quarterly/ monthly bill), or have an idea of how much you put on your card/ key meters on a weekly basis, then click this link to compare: Energy Price Comparison

You can search for the cheapest option, fixed tariffs or the most ‘green’ tariff. Once you have found the best deal, just click on ‘Switch’ and Energy Angels will help you switch your suppliers to the best deal for you, and you will be on your way to cheaper bills.* (* if this was your preferred choice).

If you would rather speak to someone, you can call us on our dedicated line and speak to one of our expert advisors: 0191 303 7191 (Opening hours: Mon-Thurs: 9am-6pm, Friday: 9am-4pm, Saturday: 9am-1pm, Sunday: Closed)

For switching with Energy Angels, not only will you possibly be saving money, but you can also MAKE money! For every dual fuel that you switch online, you will get £15 in Love to Shop vouchers! If you have done the switch over the phone, then you will receive £5 back in Love to Shop Vouchers.
