Hi David.
I have just switched from SSE to First Utility. The reason I did it was because our borough does a group switch. Last year they gave SSE as the cheapest provider, and this year First Utility. If I take part I can decide if I want to change. Anyway, I have no problems with the change - nothing else to say.

Thanks for the reply .At the moment i am paying £55 a month direct debt with SSE and they are forever trying to increase it .
First utility said i would only be paying £34 a month ,but they could say anything just to get people to switch .

I used to think that then I switched to Ecotricity.
They are excellent, their customer services are amazing and they are 'greener' and less expensive than other companies.
The only thing they do, which they have to by law is try to reduce my DD when it is reviewed each year but then I phone them up and tell them not to.
(I prefer to pay a little extra than their forecast for the year to absorb unexpected consumption.)
