We’ve just launched the UK’s cheapest energy tariff – the Family Saver Club

Family Saver Club

Join the Family Saver Club and you’ll not only get our cheapest fixed-rate tariff – you’ll also earn 12% annual interest on your credit balance!

All you have to do is pay for your energy annually instead of monthly. Once you make an initial upfront payment, you’ll start earning interest.

Step 1: Sign up

Enter a few details on our website and we’ll give you a quote based on your estimated usage. You’ll then see two options – “Pay Yearly” or “Pay Monthly”. Select the yearly option and click on “Switch Now”.

Step 2: Make an initial payment

On the next screen you’ll be asked to make an upfront payment for 1 year’s worth of energy. This money will be added to your credit balance and used up throughout the year.

Step 3: Start earning!

Each month we will deduct enough money to cover your energy use. We will then add 1% interest to your remaining balance.

Some frequently asked questions:

How much is the initial payment?

It will depend on the type of property you live in, how many people live there and your typical energy use.

For a typical dual fuel household in Greater Manchester, the initial payment would be £973 (based on Ofgem averages, correct as of October 2018).

How much interest can I make?

Again, this varies from customer to customer, but a typical dual fuel household in Greater Manchester could make around £60 in interest across the year.

How can I see how much interest I’m making?

You can log in to your online account at any time and view your accrued interest.

How often can I withdraw the interest?

You can withdraw your interest every six months, or you can leave it in your account and use it as credit – making your energy even cheaper!

What happens if my usage goes up or down?

If you end up using more energy than expected, you may have to top-up your balance or pay a final bill at the end of the 12 months to cover the difference. If you use less than expected, you will get a refund.

We strongly recommend providing regular meter readings to avoid any surprises. We’ll also carry out a payment review after 6 months to make sure you’re on track.

What if I can’t afford to pay upfront?

We still offer great value pay monthly tariffs. Just get a quote and choose the “pay monthly” option.

Why we launched this tariff

With wholesale energy prices creeping up and winter approaching, we wanted to help families plan their finances a little better.

As our CEO Barney puts it: “We know this time of year can be expensive for families up and down the country, so hopefully our Family Saver Club is a way to help them plan finances better, get some money back on the energy they use, and ease the stress that can come with contacting their energy supplier.”

“The ‘Family Saver Club’ is all part of our mission to try and find a better way for our customers.”

Eversmart CEO shortlisted for NatWest business award

business awards

Barney Cook, the CEO of Eversmart Energy, has been shortlisted for the 2018 NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards in the Start-Up Entrepreneur of the Year category.

NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards

Now in its sixth year, the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards celebrates achievements in business across a wide range of categories. Past winners include David Buttress of Just Eat, Julie Deane OBE of The Cambridge Satchel Company, James Watt of BrewDog and most recently, Hannah and Sophie Pycroft of Spectrum Collections.

Challenging the ‘big six’

Barney founded Eversmart Energy in 2016, when new regulations opened up the market for new energy suppliers to come in and challenge the dominant ‘big six’ energy companies. Eversmart aims to be modern, tech-savvy, transparent and fair.

The Manchester-based company has seen a rapid surge in growth during its short lifespan, tempting frustrated consumers away from the big six by offering better value and a more modern service.

Entrepreneurship is still alive and well

Creator of the Awards, Francesca James, said: “We have been inundated with some incredible entries this year, and all shortlisted applicants should be extremely proud of themselves! This year has yet again seen a record number of entrants and we’ve been absolutely blown away by the strength and diversity of applications.”

The figures are in – Eversmart are up to £400 cheaper than the competition!

energy savings

Big news from Eversmart HQ this week. According to the latest data from price comparison websites, switching to Eversmart Energy can knock up to £400 off your annual energy bill!

As every one of the ‘Big 6’ suppliers announced price increases earlier this year*, record numbers of people have been switching to independent providers like Eversmart, eager to find a better deal. With the help of the internet and price comparison sites, consumers are becoming savvier and more willing than ever to step away from the big suppliers.

According to the press, taking a chance on a smaller, modern energy company can have big rewards – just take a look at the table below, published by This Is Money earlier this month:

Positive News

Eversmart Energy CEO Barney Cook was thrilled when he heard the news.

“The big 6 have been taking their customers for granted for far too long. Consumers are finally waking up and realising that their loyalty isn’t being rewarded, and we’re happy to step in and offer a better alternative. The news that we are £400 cheaper than some suppliers just goes to show that it pays to shop around and make the switch. We’re proud to be one of the best value energy providers in the country.”

Is it time for you to switch?

A typical household paying for dual-fuel on a standard variable tariff with one of the big 6 suppliers could save up to £400 per year by switching over to Eversmart.
