Energy switching figures up 29% on 2018

A whopping 615,503 households switched energy supplier in March – up 29% on the same period in 2018.

This brings the total number of switches to 1,451,145 this year, up 12% when compared to the same point in 2018.

The stats released by Energy UK today shows the impact the increase of the energy price cap has had consumers. Many of whom decided to move to a cheaper energy price plan.

Lawrence Slade, Energy UK’s chief executive, said:

“It’s very positive to see increasing numbers of customers continuing to switch and engaging in the market to make sure they’re on the best deal for them – and of course, this number doesn’t include those customers who choose to move to a new tariff with their current supplier, which would add many more thousands of households.
