First Utility Launches Cheapest Fixed Price Energy Deal in the UK

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 2, 2012) - First Utility (http://www.first-utility.com/), the UK's leading independent energy supplier, has announced the launch of the UK's cheapest online and fixed tariff, iSave Fixed v3.

At an average cost of £1,040*, iSave Fixed v3 is £259 cheaper than the most expensive 'Big Six' equivalent energy deal**. The tariff allows customers to fix the prices of their gas and electricity for the next 17 months, right up until the end of December 2013.

Darren Braham, co-founder of First Utility, commented on the launch: "iSave Fixed v3 is not only the cheapest fixed online tariff on the market, but it is on average £103* cheaper than all the other fixed tariffs available today. In launching this tariff, we're aiming to bring further competition to the market and offer consumers a real alternative to the Big Six suppliers, something that consumer champions and industry experts continue to call for."

"We believe our market-leading deal will appeal to people looking to save money on their energy bills, as well as those looking for peace of mind," Mr Braham continued. "With fixed prices until December 2013, the tariff is appealing in both the short term and also for those looking for longer-term price security."
