Households in Yorkshire have proved to be the savviest energy consumers in Britain during the recent spate of energy tariff hikes, while those in central London were less likely to shop around.
According to a year-long study of energy switching, Leeds North West saw the biggest energy switching boom with almost a quarter of households choosing a better deal.
Also in the top ten were Leeds North East, Leeds East and Leeds Central with 21pc of bill payers switching to a new energy tariff.
The figures have emerged as government ministers prepare to legislate a controversial market-wide cap on standard energy tariffs after campaign pledges from most major parties called for an end to “rip-off energy tariffs”.
But the data shows the lowest proportion of energy switchers live within miles of where the legislation is taking place.
