its calculated risk isnt it,
my prices with shell were electricity 20.140p to 28.020p per kWh and your standing charge per day will change from 24.38p to 42.24p.
Your gas rates will change from 4.043p to 7.343p per kWh and your standing charge per day will change from 26.11p to 27.22p.
ive fixed with octopus at electricity 37pkwh 24p day and gas 10pkwh and 26p a day,
they are higher and lower in areas, for me, summer means very little gas use, my gamble at fixing is, if the oct cap raises 40% then the prices will be electricity 39pkwh and 59p per day and gas 10kwh and 37per day, so from oct cap i will then be saving, but should anything crash i can opt out with no fees.
its one of those they get you now or later, it doesn’t matter.
