Christmas may have come early for landlords as energy suppliers compete online.

Energy plans are being offered by suppliers battling to offer the cheapest online option, according to price comparison website uSwitch.

Npower has just undercut British Gas by £22 and OVO by £14 with its new Websaver 5 plan.

Costing an average of £907, the plan was launched last week, according to uSwitch.

Will Marples, energy expert at the comparison website, said: "With online plans consistently cheaper than standard plans and currently offering a substantial saving of just under £300 a year, this is where consumers should look to get a good deal."

Mr Marples stated that the run-up to Christmas is a good time for suppliers competing on tariffs.

Online energy plans now cost an average of £943 a year rather than £1,239 for a standard plan.

But consumers still need to wake up to the benefits that moving online has to offer which five per cent of households are currently subscribing to, Mr Marples noted.

Citizens Advice state that paying fuel bills by direct debit could also result in a discounted rate from certain suppliers.
