Our Story

We’re different to the rest. And much much better.

We set out to do things differently to all the energy brokers, and price comparison sites.

We wanted to put you in control. We wanted to be 100% impartial. We wanted to reduce costs for everyone. And we have.

You’re in control. You choose.

Others claim to switch you in 60 seconds – but they involve filling out a form and a call back. Or worse, they cold call you again and again and again.

Forget that. Our process puts you in complete control. You can go from search to contract (switch) in less than 5 minutes. It’s all completely online, and on any device.

If you want to speak – maybe you’ve got a thorny problem or just want an idea over how much a business like yours spends. We’d love to help. You can call us on 0203 826 4908 or email team@energy-scanner.com or use our live chat. The choice is yours.

We’re 100% impartial

Every broker claims to be unbiased and impartial. They’re definitely not.

They ‘sponsor’ or ‘promote’ one supplier over another, based on different commission rates with different suppliers. Don’t believe us? Ask for their commission rates in writing.

We spent a year convincing energy suppliers of a different way. A way which is fairer for you. It was a hard sell, because no one else does this. But we didn’t give up.

Every energy supplier is on the exact same terms with us, and every supplier pays us the exact same flat fee. This means all suppliers compete equally for your business. And means you choose the best deal for you.

We are the only provider in the UK that does this.
