Alex Neill, Which? Managing Director of Home Products and Services, said:
“Progress in moving millions of households off expensive standard tariffs has been painfully slow. Energy companies shouldn’t be waiting for the price cap, they need to do more to help their customers now.
“People overpaying on a poor value tariff should look to switch away to a cheaper deal immediately, as they may save up to £312 a year.”
