Energy switching rises in April

The number of customers switching energy suppliers grew for the third month in a row in April, hitting a total of 289,000, according to Energy UK. Amid the ongoing cost of living debate and rising energy bills, an increasing number of people have been looking outside of the big six for cheaper deals. The number of people switching to smaller suppliers reached an all-time high of 135,000, equating to a record 46.88 per cent of all switches.
