Over half a million switch in October

A three year record high for switching has seen 577,810 customers switch supplier last month, according to Energy UK’s recent switching data. That is 53 percent more than in September 2016.

Energy UK’s latest figures – released on Wednesday - show 92,632 customers switched to a small supplier, which is nine percent of all switches in October.

Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK, said:

“With the Energy Switch Guarantee – launched by the industry in June - customers are clearly feeling more confident to switch. That’s why last month, over half a million people took control of their energy bills. Join them and save hundreds of pounds a year.

“It only takes a few minutes to find the right deal. More than 40 suppliers are offering many deals under £1,000, so take advantage.”
