Energy UK's statement on switching figures
Following the publication of Ofgem's switching figures, Energy UK issued a statement.
Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK said:
"The huge number of energy switches in 2015 prove it's simple to pick and click a deal that could save hundreds of pounds. This year is set to see switching success continue with around six people shopping for a new supplier every minute in January - the highest comparable monthly figure since records began.
"Increased competition is also contributing to falling energy prices with the cheapest deals now costing less than £800 a year."
