May switching up 19 percent on last year
More than 430,000 customers switched supplier last month reveals new data released by Energy UK today. This is an increase of 19 percent on last May and takes the total number of switches in 2017 to over 2.2 million. May also saw three in ten (128,180) customers switch from a large supplier to a small or mid-tier supplier.
Tina Tietjen, independent chair of the Energy Switch Guarantee, said:
“It is encouraging that so many consumers shopped around for a better energy deal despite the record high temperatures in May.
“It only takes a few minutes to find out if you’re on the best deal for you. I urge all consumers to get in touch with their supplier or use a price comparison website to make sure they’re on the best deal. There are savings to be made and Energy Switch Guarantee provides customers with extra reassurance that the process will be simple, speedy and safe.”
