600,000 electricity switches in September 2019 – Uswitch comments

Written by Sarah Broomfield, Energy expert

22 October 2019

Commenting on the latest electricity switching figures, Uswitch.com energy expert Sarah Broomfield said:

“This is the fifth highest month for electricity switching in the last few years, and reinforces the fact that the best way to ensure cheaper bills and better service is by shopping around and switching.

“The battle for customers among energy companies is fierce, with challenger suppliers gaining almost 20% of all switches last month. This is leading to more attractive offers for bill payers, with several of the Big Six suppliers offering market-leading cheap deals alongside a smart meter in an attempt to increase take-up.

“With winter on the horizon and uncertainty about where energy prices will head next, consumers can lock in a fixed deal for less than £1,000 a year now, with the guarantee that the price they pay won’t change for at least 12 months.”
