Gas and Electricity Prices in Yorkshire

Shaun Starr |

May 2021


For people who live in Yorkshire, energy prices will be different in comparison to other regions such as the South West or the West Midlands. This is because of the ‘energy postcode lottery’ whereby every region has different prices for gas and electricity.

To ensure that you get the best rates for your energy supply, it is always recommended that you compare energy prices to find out what deals are available on the market.

If you’d like to find the cheapest rates for gas and electricity in Yorkshire, try our free online comparison tool today.

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

Within the 14 regions of the UK, the cost of energy varies and is impacted by the following factors:

  • The number of customers an energy provider has in the region
  • The amount of energy bought by suppliers in the region
  • The amount paid by your supplier to the area’s local distribution network

Who is the incumbent supplier for Yorkshire?

Each of the different regions in the UK have an incumbent supplier. This is the default energy supplier within the area, so any new home or business will automatically get their gas and electricity supply from this provider unless a supplier switch is completed.

Within Yorkshire, the incumbent supplier for electricity is Npower, whilst the incumbent supplier for gas is British Gas.

If you haven’t switched energy suppliers for some time, you are likely to be on a standard tariff from the region’s incumbent supplier. This type of tariff can be very expensive and often leads to homeowners and businesses overpaying for their gas and electricity. You could undoubtedly find cheaper rates by comparing energy prices and selecting a new tariff.
