West Midlands

Are you aware of the impact your postcode has on your energy costs? Many people don’t know that energy prices differ between regions. So, if you live in the West Midlands, you could be paying more or less for your energy than other areas of the UK.

But don’t fret, here at Love Energy Savings, we factor in your location when comparing energy deals and seek to find you the best energy tariffs available in your area.

Try our free energy price comparison tool today to find cheap energy deals in the West Midlands.

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

There are a number of factors that can affect energy prices in a particular region. This includes the number of customers an energy supplier has, the amount of energy purchased by suppliers in the region, and how much your supplier pays to the local distribution network.

Domestic energy prices in the West Midlands

In the West Midlands, the average electricity bill is slightly higher than the national average. The price of the average gas bill is marginally lower than the national average cost.

National Average Electricity Bill West Midlands Average Electricity Bill National Average Gas Bill West Midlands Average Gas Bill

Business energy prices in the West Midlands

To help us compare business energy prices across the regions, we’ve sourced British Gas’ deemed unit rates for half hourly meter business customers.

The figures show that the average unit rates for business electricity in the West Midlands are higher than the national average. However, the standing charge is lower than the national average cost.

National Average Unit Costs West Midlands Average Unit Costs National Average Standing Charge West Midlands Average Standing Charge
21.59p/kWh 22.89p/kWh 41.55p per day 35.10p per day

You should be cognisant of the fact that these rates will not be the cheapest deals available in the West Midlands. You should always compare energy deals to find the best energy tariff for your home and needs.

Who is the incumbent supplier for the West Midlands?

Every region has an incumbent supplier who is the main and default provider of electricity or gas. If you live in the West Midlands, your incumbent electricity supplier is Npower and British Gas is your incumbent gas supplier.

If you have a new home, these suppliers will automatically become your energy suppliers unless you organise a supplier switch. Anyone who hasn’t switched suppliers for a number of years is likely to be on the incumbent supplier’s standard energy tariff. Rates on these tariffs can be high and you would almost certainly save money by comparing energy prices and switching to a new supplier.
