Who’s affected this month?
We’ve drawn out the energy tariffs that will be ending in August 2018, so if yours is one of the 36 on the list, you might want to take the opportunity to find a new deal that could save you money.
While we know that some of you can be put off switching energy providers, many of you have already discovered that it can be worth it and have benefited from some amazing energy deals.
So what kind of savings can be made with these switches? Some of the figures might surprise you. Customers who switched with us in July 2018 to our Pure Planet 100% green tariff made an average saving of £369.75. While not everyone might be able to find such a saving, you’ve nothing to lose by having a look.
The Big Six
A couple of months ago, we saw the highest-ever number of switches away from the Big Six. That trend continued into July, with 30.61% of you switching and finding greater savings elsewhere.
While some of you did decide to move over to one of the Big Six, that number was only 11.31%. Recent reports in the press around energy price hikes have resulted in customers considering other options.
Great deals can be found everywhere, so it’s always a good idea to compare deals to find one that meets your needs.
Who has the most to gain?
Last month, those of you in the 40-49 age bracket saved the most money by switching suppliers, with an average saving of £210.15. Coming in a close second were customers aged 50-64, with an average saving of £209.94. With the lowest saving working out at £140.64 for 21-24 year olds, there are savings to be made whatever your age. And no matter where you live, regional savings start from an average of £175, so it really could pay to compare.
