Energy Switching up for first time since lockdown

Energy Supplier switching has risen this month for the first time since lockdown began. Energy UK released data showing that nearly 3 million customers have switched supplier in the first half of the year, with electricity switching up 7.5% in June compared with May. Independent Suppliers received 53% of electricity switches to or between them within June. According to a report by Compare the Market, 127 fixed energy tariffs are coming to an end in July, with many customers being automatically rolled onto their supplier’s standard variable tariff and more than likely paying over the odds as a result. Energy UK have produced a monthly report which you can download here and you can read the coverage by clicking here.
