Switching can save households hundreds of pounds
Switching energy supplier is one of the quickest and easiest ways for households to cut down on their energy bills. New, cheaper tariffs are being launched every week meaning that customers could save hundreds of pounds on their annual bill. The savings are even greater for households who haven’t switched in a long time.
Switching is very easy to do. Just call up your supplier or log on to a price comparison site, enter your postcode and usage and see how much you can save. There are now more than two dozen suppliers in the market to choose from, all of whom are competing on both price and service. The industry recently cut the time it takes to switch in half meaning customers can take advantage of new deals even quicker.
Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK said:
“I cannot emphasise enough how important it is for customers to shop around and find the best deal for them. Households can save hundreds of pounds from their annual bill simply by logging on to a website and choosing a new deal. It really is that easy. So, if you think there might be a better deal out there hunt around and see how much you can save, especially if you haven’t switched before.”
