Switching Energy Suppliers could cost users up to 30% more
We are experiencing an energy Crisis with 22 energy companies going bust and consumers automatically switched to another supplier. There are no cheap deals to be had, no better tariffs right now with Citizens Advice suggesting you stay with your current supplier on the tariff you are on.
Today we have seen a headline sent out that ‘the government have wrongly advised 10 Million people to switch energy tariff- many of them vulnerable (money saving expert)’
The article goes on to suggest that this could cost people hundreds of pounds. Letters sent out by DWP are potentially being sent to 10 million people. An unprecedented spike in energy prices, has meant that switching tariffs right now could cost users up to 30% more.
