It makes you feel guilty for not being their customer and you switch to them for electricity and gas at home......?
They cost slightly more than the web-only dual fuel deal I had with British Gas. However I would rather ecotricity make a profit from me and use it for good than british gas make a profit from me and use it for evil.I'd happily switch to ecotricity if only they'd match the deal I'm on!
I have single rate zero standing charge tariff from ebico. I pay a single, known price per unit that I use and nothing else.
every once in a while we hear how complicated energy tariffs are, yet they don't have to be dual rate or units + charges the Industry formalised pricing structure does allow for a zero standing charge, yet ecotricity won't offer that product. Every time I ask they are 'price-matching the big providers' (who are trying to take lots of profits for the shareholders!)
If you have a large PV solar system or are a low power user(single/small family) I'd advise seeking out a zero standing charge provider.
