uSwitch.com has today launched the market’s cheapest dual fuel energy deal in over four years. At just £876 a year, average customers could save a staggering £419 on their energy bills.
The collective switch initiative, available only through uSwitch.com until 27th May, is also £23 less than the market’s existing cheapest deal. uSwitch.com estimates that if all the 15.8 million households currently on big six supplier standard variable plans switched to the new tariff, they could collectively save in the region of £4.5 billion.
As part of the collective switch, uSwitch.com used the power of its customer base to invite energy providers to bid to supply a competitive deal for consumers, with E.ON submitting the lowest priced tariff.
To switch to this new, market-leading plan, customers should visit www.uSwitch.com or call 0800 093 06 07 by 27th May and sign up for a free account. The tariff – fixed for 12 months from sign up – is available to dual fuel and electricity only customers and early exit fees of £30 per fuel apply.
E.ON was voted by a panel of over 5,000 consumers ‘Large Supplier of the Year’ in the 2014 uSwitch energy awards, with an average customer satisfaction rating of 76%. The supplier was also voted best for reward schemes and helping customers become more energy efficient.
Tom Lyon, energy expert at uSwitch.com, says: “Millions of consumers could cut their energy bills by almost a third by switching to this market-leading energy plan – the cheapest in over four years. The tariff is available exclusively through uSwitch.com and could cut a massive £419 a year off the average energy bill.
“E.ON – who won this collective switch scheme – was crowned Large Supplier of the Year 2014 so customers signing up to this new tariff can also benefit from excellent customer service as well as lower energy bills.
“I’d urge consumers to visit uSwitch.com to see how much they could reduce their bills by, and take advantage of this fantastic offer before 27th May.”
