What is a Standard Tariff?
A standard tariff is designed to give you more control over the amount you are paying. With a fixed term contract in place, you never have to worry about a standard tariff changing in price.
This means that you can pick the tariff that meets your needs best and choose that tariff for a fixed contract term. This offers customers stability and ensures that the standard tariff is not changed in any way while you are under contract. This tariff essentially allows you to customize based on your needs, which is ideal for many customers.
Is There More Than One Type of Tariff?
The standard tariff might be one of the more popular options to choose from, but it is not the only choice. There are a number of other types of tariffs that are available.

Who Chooses the Tariff?
It is always a good idea to be proactive about your tariff choice. You are the only one that knows your specific energy needs and situation, which means that you are most qualified to choose the tariff that works best for you. Your needs might change from year to year, so it is a good idea to be aware of your different tariff options regularly and make changes when needed.
How is Direct Debit Altered During a Renewal?
One of the things that will change most during the renewal process is the direct debit. This likely will change as the prices that total the direct debit amount change. Other factors that can change the direct debit amount include current balance, energy usage and the total number of payments due.
Even though the direct debit amount might change during renewal, you can expect to be notified. You will be given at least a 14 day notice if your direct debit needs to be changed. This will give you enough time to rectify the situation and avoid any issues. A direct debit change is likely with a renewal, but you will be given advance notice.
Has Your Price Increased By a Substantial Amount?
When you are going through the renewal process, it is possible that a large price increase might take place. This depends on the type of tariff that you had in the past and the one that you are changing to. For example, if you had a fixed price tariff this would give you access to lower prices and keep you from experiencing any price increase during the term of the contract. However, when the term ends and you move to a new plan, you can expect to see higher prices.
What Happens If You Miss the Renewal Date?
Even though missing your renewal date is not ideal, it is not a big issue. It is still possible to change to another tariff even if your renewal date has passed. All you have to do is access your online account and look on the left hand menu for the “Find our best deal for you” tab. Using this tab, you can compare all the tariffs and select your choice.
