No, I'm on a 12 month fixed tariff, and I'm with a company that switches me (or at least looks to see if it's worth it) every October - so they can't put the bill up.

But if I deposit £1000, they will credit me £1100 - and any credit balance is protected by OfGen (government energy company regulator) I just found out so in theory, I'm getting 10% interest for paying a years energy up front. That's a pretty good deal, even if they do go bust ...
Hmmm. I'm missing something here, I'm sure of it ...
