The Tariff Comparison Rate (TCR) is designed to help you compare energy tariffs, in a similar way to Annual Percentage Rate (APR).
The TCR is based on a typical usage of 3,100 kWh of electricity or 12,500 kWh of gas a year. It takes into account the unit rate, standing charge, VAT and any discounts associated with the tariff.
Please note the TCR is not based on your personal usage and for this reason should be used as a guide only. Your actual TCR will depend on the amount of energy you use. Any termination fee that may apply to a tariff is not included in the calculation of the TCR.
If you want to get a personalised estimate of your costs for the year, for any of our current for sale tariffs then visit the home page and use our 'Quick Energy Estimate' tool. Just enter your postcode and follow the instructions to get a more accurate estimate.
