Local business launches impartial price comparison site in response to recent energy price increases

Press Release   •   Nov 25, 2011 14:30 GMT

The Glasgow-based company was asked by several of their housing association clients about ways to help their tenants save on energy costs. BCC’s team advised that consumers who haven’t reviewed the market for the last six months are more than likely paying too much for electricity and gas.

Based on the feedback from housing associations and tenants, the site has been developed to allow users to quickly input some basic details and compare every tariff on the market to find the cheapest deal to suit their needs. You don’t even have to have any paperwork with you to complete the form. It takes approximately 5 minutes to complete the form and average savings to date are more than £200 per annum.

Unlike some other comparison sites, www.switchmyenergy.co.uk is 100% impartial and shows prices form every single supplier.

Recent research has found that many people stick with the same company for many years, give their supplier their loyalty.  Unfortunately, this loyalty often means profits for the energy companies.  The suppliers benefit from customers sticking with them because the price schedules are often “phased out.”  In the industry, those price schedules are known as “tariffs”.  If the customer does not move from an out-of-date tariff, they usually default on to an expensive rate.  Therefore, the supplier gets bigger profits from you.

The site is now available for all domestic consumers to use. For users that may not have internet access, a Freephone number is available.
