Energy Pledge aims to empower consumers with the information required to make the right energy provider choice. Here's what we think you should consider when choosing your provider:

1. Donation Amount

The ‘Donation Amount’ for each Retailer deal represents the donation amount your chosen cause will receive as soon as you have successfully switched to the selected retailer.

2. Expected Savings

The ‘Expected Savings’ amount is a saving estimate assessment calculated from the bill information you have provided to Energy Pledge. The expected saving estimate is the total of:

  • Supply Charge Savings: Savings calculated from the rate charged for distributing energy to your premises
  • Usage Charge Savings: Savings calculated from the rate(s) charged for the amount of energy you used on the bill you submitted. This energy may be charged as a single rate or multiple rates for different time periods 
  • Discount Savings: Savings calculated from discount amounts, such as Prompt Payment Discount (also know as Pay On Time Discount). For the purpose of the Expected Saving estimate, Energy Pledge has assumed you will make full use of the providers discount incentives and therefore include Discount Savings within the calculation

While we have taken great care to ensure our expected savings assessment is accurate, it is not guaranteed that you will save.

We wish to advise that at present, Energy Pledge does not offer products from all providers. We present the products that best match your selected importance criteria rating from our participating provider product range.

Your energy bill comprises of four key energy components:

  • A daily supply charge for distributing energy to your premises
  • A usage charge which is dependent on the volume of energy you use. The consumption can be billed in a number of ways including 'Anytime' (the same rate for all hours of all days), 'Peak' & 'Off-Peak' (different rates for time periods of each day)
  • Discounts earned through paying on time, paying by direct debit or by receiving your invoices via email only
  • Charges for disconnecting or re-connecting your energy when moving

3. Eco-Friendly

This indicator is important for you if your key concern is to reduce your carbon footprint and increase your impact on the warming planet that we continue to experience. The ‘Eco-Friendly’ star indicator is based on independent, unbiased environmental performance information collected for our participating providers. The key sources of information for this assessment are:

  • The Green Electricity Guide: An independent ranking of all energy providers in key environmental elements, such as renewable energy, GreenPower, Solar offers, Energy efficiency and Transparency
  • The Carbon Neutral Network: A list of businesses that have certified carbon neutral products
  • Solar Energy Product Range: Each provider has Products and offers for Solar customers. We assess and rate the competitiveness of the retailer funded feed-in tariffs offered
  • Dedication to Paperless engagement: We assess each retailers dedication to saving our forests, and using eco-friendly electronic communication methods

  • Prompt Payment Discounts (discounts when you pay your invoice by the due date)
  • Sign up Credit (dollar amount you receive just for signing up)
