Switch energy suppliers and save money

Switch energy suppliers before winter sets in and save yourself money.

Almost 4 out of 5 tenants have never switched suppliers – a move which could save them up to £249 a year.

Never changed

Energy regulator Ofgem says 77% of bill payers in rented homes have never changed their gas or electricity supplier and if they are responsible for paying the bill they have the right to switch at any time with no exit fee.

Philip Cullum of Ofgem says: “Budgets are tight these days and its important consumers understand their rights regarding choosing and switching their energy supplier – it’s a move that could save them a lot of money.”

Shop around

Angela Knight, chief executive of Energy UK which represents the major suppliers says:  “People should shop around, but make sure the advice they get is impartial, reliable and above board.”

The wide range of tariffs available for both gas and electricity can often seem confusing to a consumer, but help is at hand in sorting out which supplier and which tariff is right for you.
