Want to know how to switch gas and electricity suppliers? You’re not alone… According to industry figures, over 666 000 UK customers switched their supplier in February this year, a record-breaking increase of 60% from February 2017.

This means that over a million customers have switched energy suppliers this year. Why the sudden switching? Possible reasons include:

● The cold weather during this time

● It’s becoming easier to switch (according to the voluntary Energy Switch Guarantee initiative, nine out of ten customers are happy with the switching process)
