The benefits of our fixed rate tariffs

Did you know that there are more than four million prepayment customers overpaying on their energy bills, with only four companies in the UK currently offering a fixed prepayment tariff.

A fixed rate tariff means you have a guaranteed rate on your energy prices over a fixed term.  All Nabuh Energy’s tariffs have a fixed term of 12 months, which means the price of your energy will not change for 12 months and you are protected from price rises.

There are many benefits of fixed rate tariffs.  Not only do they allow you to budget the money you spend on your energy more easily, but they also make for more predictable billing so you don’t have to worry about fluctuations in the price of your energy as it stays the same for the whole term.

There has never been a better time to switch your energy provider.  Why spend more when you could be on the UK’s cheapest fixed prepayment tariff. Sign up to the Lizzy tariff with Nabuh and save up to £200 on your energy.
