Nick from WOWCOMPARE believes energy prices have stabilised and should fall further in 2024, provided nothing shocks UK & EU energy supplies.

“It’s a good time to to start comparing home energy deals. If Ofgem lowers the energy price cap in April prices could fall even further. That’s good news for those looking for a fixed tariff and great news for those on variable tariffs.

Late spring/early summer energy prices tend to be at their lowest levels, although it’s unlikely energy prices will fall back to lows last seen in 2019 / 2020.”

Comparison sites like WOWCOMPARE make it easy for households to compare tariffs from numerous energy suppliers including many of the UK’s most popular energy companies.
