You'll also get a free smart meter! However, you will have to pay a cancellation fee should you want to switch provider again for some reason.View Deal

Scottish Power Super Saver April 2021 4B | Fixed until 30th April 2021 | Monthly: £70.17 | Annual: £842
Scottish Power is offering a slightly more expensive rate than Eon, however, only by £4 in total. And the electricity they supply is also 100 per cent renewable. This price will be fixed from now until April 2021, however, so it's definitely worth thinking about. A smart meter is mandatory with Scottish Power, while they do charge a cancellation fee. View Deal

Green Network Energy Snow Surprise V5 | 12 months fixed | Monthly: £70.26 | Annual: £843
As well as being an affordable, eco-friendly option, Green Network Energy are offering customers £80 bill credit when they switch to a fixed tarriff. Wow. However, despite the name, the only 100 per cent renewable thing you're getting is electricity. View Deal

Avro Energy Simple and eSuperSwift | 12 months fixed | Monthly: £70.29 | Annual: £844
Avro Energy is also a cost-effective option right now. Still only £70.29 per month – that's the same price as the above – and there's the bonus of zero cancellation fees should you not be happy with what you're getting.View Deal

GOTO Energy - In Control Green Feb 2021 V3 | 12 months fixed | Monthly: £71.75 | Annual: £861
Now this is an energy deal we can certainly get onboard with! Although the monthly price is slightly higher than others, you'll get peace of mind with it: All electricity from Goto Energy is from green, sustainable sources and its gas is carbon-offset to minimalise the impact on our environment. Brilliant.View Deal
