August energy switches 17% down on last year: In August, across the UK almost half a million energy customers switched supplier.
Thats 17% fewer than during the same month last year Energy UK has revealed, making a total of 471,441 switches.
The yearly total for switches thus far is up to almost four million, around 5% below 2019’s figures by this time in the year.
Emma Pinchbeck, Energy UK Chief Executive said: “Understandably figures have fluctuated more than usual this year but it’s encouraging to see that around half a million customers are still switching every month.
“As we head into the colder months of the year when we use more energy, it’s certainly worth customers speaking to their supplier to make sure they’re on the right tariff or shopping around to see what’s on offer in a very competitive market.
“Customers looking to save money should also see if they can take advantage of the Government’s Green Homes Grants scheme – as energy efficiency measures remain the best way to reduce bills in the long term while also making homes more comfortable and helping the environment.”
