The difference between the lowest and highest price available in the market at any given time is 15 to 20% - and will save you hundreds of dollars per year.

We have historical data, supplier information, home heating calculations, natural gas price charts; and links to solar energy, green power and wind power sites.
This price comparison helps you find the cheapest electricity and natural gas among energy companies. While taking the time to compare energy prices does not have the sex appeal of shopping for TVs and electronics, it actually saves you much more money in your personal budget. If you sign a contract for 1 cent less per m³ (27¢/GJ), you will save about $30 per year. The difference between the highest and lowest price is usually 5 cents ($1.35/GJ), so signing with the lowest cost provider will save you $150 per year. Think about this when the door to door marketers and telemarketers call.
