Gas and Electricity Prices in the South West

Shaun Starr |

May 2021

South West

When you compare energy suppliers, the prices you will be quoted by energy suppliers differ depending on which region of the UK you live.

That is one of the reasons we recommend you compare energy prices in the South West with Love Energy Savings, to make sure you can see accurate deals from a wide range of suppliers.

The fastest and easiest way to find the cheapest energy prices in the South West is to enter your postcode into our online comparison engine.

How do energy prices in the South West compare to the rest of the UK?

The cost of energy prices in your area depends on a number of factors including how many customers a supplier has in your area, how much energy suppliers in your area buy and the fee your supplier pays to the local distribution network.

Domestic energy prices in the South West

Unfortunately, in the South West, average domestic gas and electricity prices are significantly above the national average as shown in the table below:

National Average Electricity Bill South West Average Electricity Bill National Average Gas Bill South West Average Gas Bill

Business energy prices in the South West

To compare regional business electricity prices, we have compared British Gas’ deemed unit rates for half hourly meter business customers.

As you can see in the table below, the unit rate for business electricity in the South West is slightly above average and the standing charge is below the national average.

National Average Unit Costs South West Average Unit Costs National Average Standing Charge South West Average Standing Charge

Remember, these prices are not illustrative of the cheapest available in the South West. The quickest way to find a cheap energy deal in the South West is by completing an energy price comparison.

Who is the incumbent supplier for the South West?

Depending on where you live on the UK, you will have an assigned incumbent supplier. This is the default, or automatic, provider of gas or electricity in the region.

The South West is part of the SWEB region. For those living in the South West, the incumbent electricity supplier is EDF and British Gas is the incumbent gas supplier.

For those who have not switched energy supplier, you are likely to have our energy supplied by one of these providers. Unfortunately that means you are likely to be on a standard energy tariff. That may not sound bad, but standard energy tariffs tend to be the most expensive available.
