More customers switch in 2015
Almost 3.5 million have switched electricity supplier so far this year. This is higher than the same period in both 2014 and 2013.
The latest electricity switching data also shows 113,780 customers switched to smaller suppliers in November, which is above average at 29 per cent of all switches for the month.
Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK, said:
“We have seen a record number of switches so far this year which proves people are engaged with their energy providers and shopping around to find the best deal for them.
“The industry and government’s commitment to make switching simpler and quicker for customers has been reflected in the increase in switches this year.”
