With an astonishing 73% of UK consumers not having switched energy supplier before, there is a big opportunity to save on one of the biggest household costs, especially with winter round the corner. Consumers can now enjoy exclusive access to the cheapest 1 year fixed energy deal in the UK thanks to a unique partnership with Metro and first:utility. This is the first time a deal specifically targeted at commuters has been launched.
Voltz is a free app that lets you compare energy prices, based on your actual current usage, and switch to a better deal, saving up to £420 (*based on the average standard bill with a Big Six energy company), with just a couple of taps of your phone or tablet screen. It’s utterly goof-proof and takes about five minutes to do. What’s more, Voltz has arranged an exclusive for Metro readers – access to the UK’s cheapest fixed-rate energy deal from First Utility, which is 27 per cent cheaper than the standard rate of the Big Six energy companies, and fixed for one year if you switch before December 4.
“We were trying to think about what would make it easier for people to keep on top of their energy usage and be able to switch more easily” explains the app’s product director Florian Ritzmann. “We knew it needed to be easy to use and quick, and that it would be great to have a tool that just sits on your phone and can send you an alert when it’s time to switch again, or when a new, better deal comes out, so that you’d never have to think about it again. And we wanted it to take just a couple of minutes, so that you could change energy supplier in less time than it takes to get the train to work in the morning. We designed this deal to be especially cheap for Londoners, who usually use slightly more energy than average because the Victorian houses and flats here can be more draughty and often have single glazing and exposed floorboards that suck out the heat. It’s also perfect with the winter months coming – the rate is fixed so you don’t have to worry about it costing more when it’s cold.”
All you need to do is download the Voltz app, then enter your own details and who your current supplier is (you don’t even need to know your tariff), and the app does the rest. There is no commitment to switch or to choose a particular deal – you can opt for what seems best for you. Voltz will remind you when that deal expires or alert you when a better one comes along, so you’ll never lose out again.
All consumers need to do to save is to following 3 easy steps:
