Benefits of switching gas and electricity suppliers

Record number of energy switches in 2015 but more must be done

Following a research announcement from Ofgem, the energy industry regulator, that found 'more consumers are shopping around with over 6 million energy switches in 2015’, Matt Ridout, researcher at energyhelpline made the following comments concerning these research findings:

“It’s encouraging that the number of people who are switching increased last year. Consumers are realising that loyalty doesn’t pay and the only way to get a better deal for your energy is to shop around.”

“More can still be done, as millions of homes are still paying far too much for their gas and electricity, with suppliers making only token price cuts following massive wholesale price reductions.”

“Switching needs to become a routine part of every household’s financial management. Savvy consumers switch to save and it takes just a few minutes!"
