North East

When you compare energy prices with Love Energy Savings, you are one step closer to reducing your monthly household bills or business expenses.

When comparing energy suppliers, the quotes you receive will depend on which region of the UK you are based.

When you request a quote with Love Energy Savings, we’ll ask you for your postcode. This is so we can show you accurate gas and electricity prices in the North East from the suppliers who operate in that area.

To compare energy prices in the North East has never been so simple via our energy comparison tool.

How do energy prices in the North East differ from the rest of the UK?

The UK is split into 14 different energy regions. Each region’s gas and electricity prices vary slightly.

That may seem strange but the amount customers pay depends on factors unique to the area such as:

  • How many customers each energy provider supplies.
  • How much energy is purchased by energy providers.
  • The amount of money your supplier pays to the area’s local distribution network

Business energy prices in the North East

To show you the variations by region in business electricity prices, we have used British Gas’ deemed unit rates for half hourly meter business customers.

In this example, both the unit cost and standing charge costs for the North East are below UK average prices.

Who are the incumbent energy suppliers in the North East?

The 14 energy regions of the UK all have incumbent gas and electricity suppliers who are the default suppliers for homes and businesses in that area.

North East’s incumbent electricity supplier is Npower. The incumbent gas supplier is British Gas.

Why is this important? You maybe on the incumbent supplier’s standard energy tariff if you have not switched energy supplier. That matters because standard contracts have some of the most expensive rates which means you overpay for your gas and electricity.
