Compare Energy Prices with Powershop UK today
Founded in New Zealand in 2009, Powershop expanded into the UK in 2017 as an electricity-only energy supplier with the financial backing of one of the UK’s big six energy companies, npower.
Powershop UK now has tens of thousands of domestic energy customers, and has expanded beyond electricity to launch its dual fuel tariff in 2018.
If you’re thinking of switching your energy supplier and would like to compare Powershop UK’s tariffs with those of the other main energy suppliers why not use our energy price comparison service now? It’s free to use, and you’re under no obligation to switch.
Is Powershop UK owned by npower?
In the UK Powershop is a trading name of PS Energy UK Limited, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of npower Limited.
Powershop UK is run as a standalone business, though, which is why the brand argues that its customers are able to enjoy all the benefits of an independent supplier with the stability and backing of npower.
How much could I save on my energy bills by switching to Powershop UK?
Unfortunately there’s no universal, one-size-fits-all answer to that question.
The exact amount a domestic energy customer might be able save if they switched to Powershop (or any other energy supplier, for that matter) would be based on a wide range variables, including which supplier they’re currently with, the tariff they’re currently on, the tariff they’re planning to switch to and how much gas and electricity they typically consume, so the best way to get an accurate idea of how much you could save is to use our energy comparison service to compare tariffs.

Does Powershop Energy supply gas as a standalone utility?
No, not as a standalone supply.
When it launched in 2017 Powershop UK was an electricity-only supplier, but in 2018 the company began supplying gas too.
However, similar to M and S Energy, Boost Power, Shell Energy, Together Energy, Ovo Energy and Igloo Energy and a host of other smaller suppliers, Powershop UK doesn’t currently only supplies gas as part of a dual fuel tariff rather than as a standalone supply.
Does Powershop supply business customers?
What is Powershop Pro?
Customers that decide to sign up as a Powershop Pro customer get a fixed unit rate for their energy, which the company calls its Baseline Tariff. In practice that means customers pay the same amount for each unit of energy but a different amount each month, since their monthly payments will be directly based on the units of energy they use. They need to supply Powershop with weekly meter readings for this purpose.
Customers that don’t want to sign up for Powershop Pro also have the option to choose a more traditional pricing model, which the company calls Powershop Lite.
Does Powershop UK provide smart meters?
No, Powershop UK doesn’t currently supply smart meters, although it is currently working to develop this capability.
If you’ve had a smart prepayment meter installed by a previous supplier and you switch to Powershop the smart meter will function as a standard meter (or a ‘dumb meter’, as it’s sometimes known) until Powershop has developed the capability to support them.
