  • There are 30 fixed dual fuel tariffs ending on March 31.
  • Households could see their energy bills rise by more than a quarter (27%).
  • Two of the ‘big six’ suppliers have deals ending that will result in price increases: EDF Energy and Npower.

Families could be set for a shock a 30 fixed dual fuel deals expire on March 31st, resulting in an average rise of £269 (27%). However, customers could save as much as £305 by shopping around for a better deal.

Research by Gocompare.com Energy found that a range of fixed dual fuel energy tariffs, including deals from energy giants Npower and EDF Energy, are due to expire at the end of the month.

Unless they take action now, customers who are currently on these tariffs will be automatically rolled onto a standard variable rate (SVR) which, in the majority of cases, are more expensive than the deal they are currently on.
