The amount I'm paying has always been quoted on the Internet as the national average. So why were they so amazed initially.? Is this just part of the sales pitch? There may be a company that offers a slightly cheaper tariff but I'm currently nearly £600 in credit on my account for which Ovo pays me 5% interest. That's about 10 times what my bank pays on my ISA account. Plus I can contact Ovo quite easily on the phone.
So who pays these firms that knock on your day telling you're paying too much?

OVO doesn't directly employ any door to door sales representatives. It sounds like they may have been working for a third party broker. These brokers will represent a large number of energy suppliers, but will work for an independent company.
I can't account for their reactions - perhaps it was part of the sales pitch! We're happy to have open and honest discussions about price at OVO, and definitely don't have any tricks like this up our sleeves to persuade potential customers to sign up!
Hope this helps,
