Nation’s leading energy switchers revealed


New figures released today by the Energy Switch Guarantee reveal that Yorkshire is home to the savviest energy customers in the UK.     

The figures (see tables below) show the number of households in each UK Parliamentary constituency that have switched electricity supplier between September 2016 and August 2017.

Leeds North West contains the UK’s most prolific switchers with 23 percent (8,444) of all households having looked to save money by switching provider during this time.

Yorkshire leads the way when it comes to cash conscious energy customers – accounting for seven of the top ten switching areas which also feature Leeds North West, Haltemprice and Howden, Newcastle upon Tyne East, Sheffield Hallam, Leeds North East, Leeds East, Leeds Central, Peterborough, Plymouth Moor View and Pudsey.

The Energy Switch Guarantee – a voluntary industry initiative launched in June last year – is a set of commitments made by suppliers to ensure that switching energy supplier is simple, speedy and safe for customers. It is on track to cover over 90 percent of the market by the end of the year.
