Over half a million switch in March

The latest switching data, published today by Energy UK, reveal over half a million customers (536,658) switched supplier in March. This is an increase of 13 percent on last March and takes switching in 2017 to over 1.3 million consumers.

Smaller suppliers saw a net gain among switchers of 35 percent, with over 145,000 customers switching from larger to small and mid-tier suppliers.

Tina Tietjen, Independent Chair of the Energy Switch Guarantee, said:

“It is encouraging to see that so many people decided to switch supplier in January. There has never been a better time to see which deal is best for you and with the Energy Switch Guarantee, customers can be reassured that the process will be simple, speedy and safe.”
