Switching numbers up for June

By energylinx

Energy UK have said that over quarter of a million households switched their electricity supplier in June 2015.

The latest electricity switching data shows 258,658 households chose a new supplier in June 2015 – 73,490 of those switches went to smaller suppliers. This is more than a quarter of all switches (28 per cent). This is above average for 2015, so far.

June’s switching figures are higher than those from the same period in 2014 and 2013, which were 227,748 in June 2014 and 215,076 in June 2013.

Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK said:

Switching numbers are still high even though it’s summer when people may not be thinking so much about their heating bills. Over a quarter of a million people found new deals in June with well over a quarter of those making the switch to smaller suppliers. It only takes a matter of minutes to compare what’s out there and, with around 23 tariffs from 18 suppliers offering deals coming in at under £1,000 a year, everyone can shop around for the best energy offers and make this a summer of switching.”
