The energy market in the UK is incredibly complicated.
Power Compare was set-up at the end of 2017 to try and help both home and business customers get a clearer picture of how it all works. The hope is that this will allow you to find a cheaper and better supplier.
To do this we’re aiming to be one of the only websites to profile ALL energy companies in the UK. Additionally, we’ll be publishing guides to help you learn more about different aspects of the complicated energy market.
Note, we are not an energy supplier, broker, or generator. Instead we are an information only website, so can only refer you to businesses that provide relevant products and services.
How we make money?
Now while we’d love to be able to do all this for free, London (where we are based) is not cheap. That’s why we want to be clear where we make money, so you can decide whether or not you can trust us.
Currently we make money in 3 ways:
- Domestic Energy Switches: These are handled by Energylinx, who are OFGEM accredited. They compare all tariffs from all suppliers in the UK market, which is why we’re working with them. Their service is completely free to use and we are only paid once you actually make the switch.
- Business Energy Quotes: These are handled by Quote My Energy who are the largest business energy quote provider in the UK. The service is completely free to use, but unlike domestic energy, we are paid per inquiry as the process for switching business energy is more difficult and time consuming than switching domestic energy.
- Referral Revenue: We also occasionally make money by referring people to specific websites (e.g. Bulb, uSwtich, etc.) The terms will vary by website, but generally there is no additional cost to you.
We hope you like our site and find it useful. You can send any questions or feedback to us via our contact page.
