What are the benefits of switching energy supplier?

If you've never switched your gas or electricity supplier, then you will almost certainly save money on your energy bills by moving to a different supplier.

On average, customers who used the Which? Switch savings calculator saved £237 in a year, based on figures gathered between June 2010 and May 2011. A quick check using Which? Switch will show you how much you could save on energy bills.

Even if you have switched before, energy prices change all the time and suppliers are constantly coming up with new types of energy tariffs to win your business. So it pays to check every nine to 12 months to be sure you’re still getting the best deal.

Which? Switch can match you with the best energy deal for your individual circumstances. If you have extra considerations besides price, such as greener energy, loyalty card points or air miles, our switching service can recommend the best plan for you.
