MP urges Bury residents to switch energy suppliers to save hundreds of pounds

New figures released from the Energy Switch Guarantee (ESG) reveal that only 15% of households in Bury have switched electricity supplier and potentially saved hundreds of pounds during the last year.

The Energy Switch Guarantee is a commitment by energy suppliers - from the largest to some of the newest in the market - to make switching simple, speedy and safe and will soon cover 90 percent of the market.

Energy Switch Guarantee hosted an event at Parliament on 6th December where Which Switch? was on hand to demonstrate how simple it can be to switch energy supplier and save hundreds of pounds a year.

Bury North MP James Frith said:

"Only 15% of households in Bury have taken advantage of the big savings that are on offer, it would be great to see more join them. Customers can save hundreds of pounds - especially if they have been with the same supplier for years. Speaking to residents across Bury, I know the pressure people are under with the rising cost of their gas and electricity bills.

“This winter I encourage everyone in Bury to take a few minutes to find out if they can be on a better energy deal. If you haven’t switched before you might think it is a bit daunting but as I found out, it’s simple. And with the Energy Switch Guarantee in place customers can be reassured that switching will be simple, speedy and safe so make sure your supplier has signed up.”

    Have switched suppliers at least a dozen times. My gas price is 2.7p/kwhr (I pay 121p/litre for my petrol) my electric is 11.5p/kwhr. I do it because it ‘saves’ me at least 300 quid a year. If I lived in terrace or a semi detached I might ‘save’ 50 quid! I wouldn’t be bothered!!! "save’ is because there’s at least 5% to 15% tax in that price.
