Data from Energy UK show that in the first quarter of 2015 946,000 households switched their electricity supply, up from 750,000 during the same time last year.
In March alone there were 417,000 UK households that switched their electricity supply – an increase of over 100,000 from February.
Lawrence Slade, Chief Executive of Energy UK, said:
“The substantial increase in the number of people switching electricity supplier is proof that the industry is working. It is great to see customers looking around to find deals to suit them and there are more suppliers ever to choose from. With a number of tariffs more than £100 cheaper than last year, I would urge customers to make sure that they are on the best tariffs for their household.”
In March, 23% of all switches were from large suppliers, down from nearly 26% in February and 38% in March 2014.
