Ecotricity customers will see gas prices fall by 7% from 1 April.
Those with the provider’s standard variable dual fuel tariff and its gas-only variable tariff will benefit from the move – including those with prepayment meters.
Electricity-only customers will not see prices fall, and Ecotricity does not sell fixed-rate tariffs.
Have other providers cut bills?
The move by Ecotricity follows hot on the heels of price cuts announced by the big six energy providers over the last few weeks:
- E.on cut gas prices by 5.1% from 1 February.
- Scottish Power will cut gas prices by 5.4% from 15 March.
- British Gas will cut gas prices by 5.1% from 16 March.
- EDF will cut gas prices by 5% from 24 March.
- Npower will cut gas prices by 5.2% from 28 March.
- SSE will cut gas prices by 5.3% from 29 March.
But you can save much more by switching
Ecotricity says its price cut will save the average customer £46/year, taking dual fuel prices to £1,087/year.
But you can save around £300 more by switching to the cheapest tariff on the market.
