As with many tariffs, particularly from the newer suppliers the tariffs that Simplicity offer are all online only so you won't get a bill through the post and payment is by direct debit. Apart from their standard variable tariff all of their energy plans are fixed for 12 or 18 months with a £35 per fuel early exit fee.
The current cheapest tariff from Simplicity is 2020Cabbage which would cost the average UK household £839.45 a year or £69.95 a month. The 2020Cabbage tariff is their cheapest 12 month fixed deal but they do offer a longer 18 month fixed tariff.
Simplicity's PlantATree18 and 2020Spinach are 18 month fixed price tariffs at the same price. The only difference between the two is that the PlantATree18 tariff plants a tree every month on your behalf.
Simplicity Energy Simply Variable tariff
The Simply Variable tariff is by far the most costly energy tariff to be on, costing £1,153 per year compared to their 2020Cabbage tariff costing £839.45 a year. Standard variable, standard rate or evergreen tariffs are the most expensive energy you can get from your supplier. You will automatically default to these plans if you do not actively switch to a cheaper deal at the end of your current tariff.
You can do a comparison yourself to find out of you are overpaying for your energy and switch to a cheaper energy deal.
