Why should I switch energy suppliers?

Sticking with the same energy supplier year after year could mean you're paying more for your gas and electricity than you need to. Research from Ofgem has shown that shopping around could net customers significant savings by finding the cheapest gas and electric supplier for their situation.

Likewise, Compare the Market's figures reveal that 50% of people could save up to £226** on their dual fuel energy costs by comparing tariffs and switching to a cheaper energy supplier.
