The energy regulator and suppliers have ensured that customers are able to switch providers in three days and have pledged that one-day switching will be in place by the end of 2018 at the latest. Gas and electricity are some of our biggest household expenses and amongst the most complicated to manage, but we can help you find the right utilities supplier and tariff with ease. This comparison will include the UK's small suppliers, giving you strong alternatives to the products offered by the 'big six' energy companies. Should you choose to try our service we think you'll find our forms easy to use, but there'll be on-screen help to guide you through every step.
You'll get the most accurate quotes if you have a recent utilities bill to hand, but if that's not possible our energy calculator will help you to make a reasonable estimate of your gas and electric usage. Start by entering your postcode, then choosing whether you want to compare just gas suppliers, just electric suppliers, or dual fuel. Note that the latter is likely to be more convenient if you need both utilities, but it won't necessarily be the cheapest option. Be ready for questions on what's your main source of heating, who your current supplier is, how you pay and whether you have Economy 7. Most energy suppliers pay us a commission if you switch through us, but the prices will be the same if you went directly to the supplier (reflecting their own costs of advertising and service provision). Our results page will show you a price comparison table with the name of the suppliers, estimated annual savings if you switch, monthly and annual costs, payment and tariff types, key product features and whether the supplier offers the Warm Home Discount scheme (you can find out more information about this scheme in our quotes process and our guide pages). After completing a short application form, there'll be a 14-day cooling off period, then your switch will be completed in three days. To find out more about your options read our guides, where you'll also find the answers to frequently asked questions on utilities. Our guides offer more information on key areas such as identifying your supplier, reading bills and meters, boiler and central heating cover, cooling-off periods, a checklist for moving home, money-saving tips, help with winter fuel bills and what to do in an emergency.
You can also find out more about small energy firms, tenants' rights when switching, green energy schemes, the midata initiative and renewable technology. When checked, Shutterstock's safe search screens restricted content and excludes it from your search results.
A University of Toronto professor says owning an electric car in some Canadian provinces could actually be worse for the environment than conventional gas-powered automobiles. In Alberta, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia, electric cars generate more carbon pollution over their lifetimes than gas-powered cars, according to Chris Kennedy, a professor of civil engineering at the University of Toronto, in an interview with CBC’s The Current.


Those provinces generate much of their electricity by burning coal, so consuming more electricity – such as by charging an electric car battery – significantly boosts carbon emissions.
The professor published a commentary on the issue in the March issue of Nature Climate Change. The carbon emissions from electricity generation are measured in tonnes of CO2 emitted per gigawatt hour of electricity produced. Thirty million of Canada’s 35 million citizens live in provinces where EVs reduce CO2 emissions plus ~180 million Americans and ~400 million in the EU. There are many different electrical generation methods, each having advantages and disadvantages with respect to operational cost, environmental impact, and other factors. Each generation method produces climate-warming greenhouse gases in varying quantities through construction, operation, fuel supply and decommissioning. Accounting for emissions from all phases of the project (construction, operation, and decommissioning) is called a lifecycle approach.
In 2011 the world's nuclear power plants supplied 2518 TWh (billion kWh) of electricity. The World Nuclear Association review of lifecycle emissions from nuclear and renewable generation showed that lifecycle emissions from all the major forms of renewables (solar, wind, biomass, hydroelectric) and nuclear were similiar. NEW YORK -- A plunge in the price of natural gas has made it cheaper for utilities to produce electricity. The recent heat wave increased demand for power as families cranked up air conditioners, which may boost some utility bills for June. In many states, regulators set retail electricity rates every few years, so lower power costs have not yet made their way to customers. The cost of delivering electricity, which accounts for 40 percent of a customer's bill on average, has been rising fast.
In a typical summer month, that would mean an extra $3 on a residential bill, which includes generating the power and delivering it to a home, plus local taxes and fees.

Some generation methods such as coal fired power plants release the majority of emission when their carbon-containing fossil fuels are burnt, producing carbon dioxide.


Comparing the lifecycle emissions of electrical generation allows for a fair comparison of the different generation methods on a per kilowatt-hour basis.
The results summarised in the chart below show that generating electricity from fossil fuels results in greenhouse gas emissions far higher than when using nuclear or renewable generation.
The following table shows the additional emissions that would have been produced if fossil fuels had been used to generate the same amount of electricity. Replacing generation from nuclear or renewables with fossil fuels would lead to similar rises in greenhouse gas emissions. Research seems to show promise; one test installation in Yonkers, NY, can produce 200kw by using gas created in the operations of a wastewater treatment plant. But the savings are not translating to lower rates for customers; electricity prices are going up. And any increase is noteworthy because natural gas, used to produce nearly a third of the country's power, is 43 percent cheaper than a year ago.
That protects customers when fuel prices spike, but prevents customers from reaping benefits during price drops. Utilities are building transmission lines, installing new equipment, and fixing up power plants. Adjusted for inflation, the average retail electricity price has drifted mostly lower since 1984, when it was 16.7 cents per kilowatt-hour. Where power providers can compete, such as Texas, Pennsylvania, New York, and Ohio, customers can shop for cheaper electricity, although delivery charges still are set by regulators. Others, such as wind power and nuclear power, give rise to much less emissions, these being during construction and decommissioning, or mining and fuel preparation in the case of nuclear.
