More energy customers switching supplier

switchEnergy UK has recorded the highest number of switches this year for a July since it started records.

Looks like consumers are finally taking notice of the energy market amongst high-profile publicity in the press and a government campaign.

The energy market has been under close scrutiny with the general elections and recent CMA investigation into energy prices.

After reports that the big six had overcharged customers by £1.2 billion, it seems that the public is finally opening it’s eyes to potential deals out there.

Independent suppliers gained 74,405 customers in July – a whopping 27% of switches. These smaller suppliers are offering more tariffs and better customer service. While consumers may have been suspicious of little known companies to start with, their reputations are quickly gathering speed.

Energy UK’s chief executive Lawrence Slade said:

“We often forget about energy over the summer months. But now is the right time to look at your energy consumption and make sure you are on the best deal for you.”

We completely agree. To find the best deal for your business, call us on 0800 051 5770.
