A total of 5,543,472 customers switched energy supplier during 2017 according to the latest Energy UK figures.

This represents a 15% increase against 2016’s figure, and over 30% increase against 2014. In ten months during 2017, over 400,000 customers switched supplier.

Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK said:

“It is tremendous to see switching surpassing all expectations during 2017. Every year more and more customers are seeking out a better deal and potentially saving themselves hundreds of pounds a year. With nearly 60 suppliers to choose from, the market is more competitive than ever before and the Energy Switch Guarantee provides consumers with extra reassurance that switching supplier will be simple, speedy and safe.”

“I would encourage all customers to spend a few minutes checking the deal they are on. You could save a lot of money on your current energy bill – whether it be with a new supplier or your existing provider.”
