It's hard to believe but despite us basking in record sunshine more than 1.45 million of us were concerned enough about upcoming energy costs to switch our electricity suppliers over the summer in time for the big winter bills. Let's face it, we knew the high temperatures were never going to last and at some point we were going to have to reach for the 'heating on' button. In August alone there was an 11% increase in the number of people switching and it is believed that the total is on course to beat last year's 5.5 million switches. It seems too that the smaller and medium sized suppliers are winning out over the big six. Nine out of every ten people are happy with the switch process. However, Ofgem have said that there are still millions of customers who are paying over the odds for their energy – so what are you waiting for? An even bigger bill than last year? For more information on how easy it is to switch check out Energy Switch Guarantee here who carried out the original research.
