Npower is one of the existing UK energy suppliers that now offers all power products to anyone in England for electricity and gas. Here’s our review of their pricing and products.
Npower are part of the RWE (Rheinisch-Westfalische Elektrizitatswerke) the UK arm of this German power company and one of the largest UK energy companies.
You can choose to take electricity, gas or both products from Npower although their website does not appear to allow you just to choose one product and they target you to choose dual fuel options. We also could not find their standard tariffs so we could compare to the other UK energy suppliers although they do have a comparison search engine on their website.
Our advice is to get quotes and compare them yourselves.
Other points to note are that Npower were one of the last companies to reduce electricity prices in early 2009 (which were for new customers only) and the gas prices were not reduced at all. Additionally they have been receiving press reports about over charging customers.

Additional Information and Discounts
You can reduce your bill even more if you take up some of the discounts and offers that are available as follows:
Npower looks great if you are looking for prices and tariffs that come from renewable sources as there is no premium over their standard tariff which most other energy companies add. There are also no penalties for moving so no contracts as such even for their fixed rates. The only drawback is finding out the actual costs to compare to other providers but this is fairly straight forward by using a price comparison site. (It’s not possible to have a standard comparison here because Npower’s prices vary according to where your house is in the country).
