Alex Neill, Which? Managing Director of Home Products and Services, said:
“As the cold snap continues across the UK, households will be worried about any potential gas supply shortage and whether this will push up the price that many are already struggling to pay for their energy.
“Anyone overpaying on a poor value tariff should look to switch away to a better deal immediately, as they may save up to £305 a year.”
Notes to editors:
- Customers looking for cheaper energy deals can compare deals with Which? Switch, a transparent and impartial way to compare energy tariffs and find the best gas and electricity supplier.
- A £305 saving is based on a medium user (using Ofgem averages of 3,100 kWh electricity and 12,000 kWh gas per year, paying by monthly direct debit, with paperless bills), switching from the priciest Big Six SVT (Npower) to the cheapest deal on the market.
