Switching from fixed to variable tariffs

If you joined us through a partner site or collective switch, your Bulb tariff might be fixed. Collective switches used to require suppliers to offer a fixed tariff, so members who joined through a collective will have our one tariff, but it was fixed at the moment you signed up.

Variable vs fixed; pros and cons

Variables are great if you want to go for the lowest prices. Price drops don't affect fixed tariffs, so our 5 price drops this winter won't have benefited any fixed tariffs. On the other hand, variable prices can go up as well as down. But, we'll always give you at least 30 days notice if we increase our variable tariff. And, with unchanging payment amounts throughout the year, you still have peace of mind about your energy costs. At the time of writing, our variable is lower than all our fixed tariffs because wholesale energy prices have come down and we have been fast to follow with price reductions.
