Energy switching champions are up North! The savviest at saving money by switching their energy providers are Northern households, while Londoners are the worst.

A new survey from the comparison and switching service Uswitch has found, which suggests top the list for saving money by switching their energy provider are Northern towns and cities – seven of the top ten towns and cities for switching are in the north of England.

The report which is based on data from the last twenty years, shows leading the table is Harrogate in Yorkshire with 196 switches per 1,000 people, while London has only 116 per 1,000.

It is believed the capital has a lower rate of switching due to the higher number of Londoners who rent, rather than own, their home.

Five Yorkshire locations make the top ten the findings indicate, while five Welsh places including Cardiff, Newport and Swansea are in the bottom ten.

Energy Expert at Uswitch, Will Owen commented: “Northerners are showing southerners how it’s done when it comes to switching, with Harrogate residents switching at twice the rate of those in central London.

Yorkshire residents are earning their reputation for being frugal, with five locations in the top ten being from God’s Own Country.”
