uSwitch comments on Bulb reaching 100,000 customers

Commenting on the news that green energy supplier, Bulb, has reached 100,000 customers this week, Claire Osborne, energy expert at uSwitch.com, says: “Bulb is a true small supplier success story. It has a unique offering in the energy market, with one single, affordable, green tariff that it has managed to cut in price twice this year – when others have hiked theirs.

“Impressively, Bulb has managed to maintain a first-class customer service record while growing at this fast pace. With no exit fees and only one variable tariff to choose from, it’s important that Bulb keeps up this high standard to ensure its customers stay loyal.

“The bigger players must compete with these smaller suppliers on cheaper tariffs and better customer service or people will continue to vote with their feet. It’s never been easier to switch and there are savings of up to £618 to be made.”

Launched in September 2000, uSwitch is an online and telephone price comparison and switching service, helping consumers get a better deal on gas, electricity, broadband, TV services, mobiles and personal finance products including mortgages, credit cards, car and home insurance. Last year we saved UK consumers over £278 million on their energy bills alone.

Customers can sign up to an account that automatically monitors the energy market and notifies them when they can move to a cheaper tariff, while broadband customers can conduct a speed test to find out how fast their broadband is and identify the best deal for their postcode.

The multi award-winning 'Switching Made Simple' app allows customers to compare energy, broadband, credit card, mobile and SIM-only deals – and uSwitch also has a UK contact centre manned by energy and broadband experts. Customers can post their latest energy bills to FREEPOST USWITCH to receive a free call back and be guided through the comparison process, or they can email customerservices@uswitch.com with their postcode and usage details.
