More customers switch and prepare for winter

Electricity shoppers are planning for winter and more are switching to get a good deal. In September, nearly 260,000 households switched with nearly half of the total moving electricity provider choosing a small supplier.

Angela Knight, chief executive of Energy UK said:

“It is fantastic to see the public getting ready for winter by picking the best deal for them. There has never been more choice so if you haven’t compared your current tariff with what’s out there, log on to a price comparison site or pick up the phone to your supplier, you could save money.

“Smaller electricity providers are gaining a larger chunk of the market month on month on month. This is because the market is becoming more and more competitive as time goes on. More suppliers are joining the sector, more customers are shopping around and all suppliers are fighting hard for new business.”
