I recently attended an event in Parliament hosted by the Energy Switch Guarantee where Which Switch? demonstrated how companies are making it simpler to switch energy supplier to help save the consumer money.
The Energy Switch Guarantee is a commitment by energy suppliers - from the largest to some of the newest in the market - to make switching simple, speedy and safe, and will soon cover 90 percent of the market. I discovered that over 6,700 households in our area have taken advantage of the Energy Switch Guarantee and have switched electricity supplier during the last year; in addition to those customers who have also switched to better tariffs from the same supplier.
This winter I encourage everyone to take a few minutes to find out if they are on the best deal for them. For those who haven’t switched before, it’s a lot simpler and quicker than you may think – and companies are now obliged to offer you their best tariffs upfront. It is great to see companies supporting their customers and being transparent regarding their prices; I hope that consumers will use this power to save money and get the best deal available.
