Switching supplier heats up in June

Over 250,000 customers switched electricity provider in June, Energy UK said today.

The latest electricity switching data shows 258,658 households chose a new supplier in June 2015 – 73,490 to smaller suppliers. This is more than a quarter of all switches (28 per cent), above average for the year so far.

Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK said:

“Switching numbers are still high even though it’s summer when people may not be thinking so much about their heating bills.

“Over a quarter of a million people found new deals in June with well over a quarter of those making the switch to smaller suppliers. 

“It only takes a matter of minutes to compare what’s out there and, with around 28 tariffs from 16 suppliers offering deals coming in at under £1,000 a year, everyone can shop around for the best energy offers and make this a summer of switching.”
