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.
