Peter Earl continued, “Our latest energy insight (known as the Energy Snapshot) found that over 65 year olds saved an average of £212 on their energy bills in December by switching provider. This saving, combined with the Winter Fuel Payment, is another step towards giving elderly people in the UK enough support to heat their home, rather than risking their own health to save money.”
So make sure you have look at our energy comparison service as it could help to give you peace of mind this winter. Start saving now.
