There have been more than 1.5 million energy switches this year so far.
That’s according to Energy UK which also stated more than 438,100 switches were made in April.
Switching has surpassed 400,000 for the third month in a row, it added.
The number of switches to small and mid suppliers has remained consistent with 43% of switches last month.
Lawrence Slade, CEO at Energy UK said: “It is great to see electricity switching is becoming more common practice among customers, with switching once again surpassing 400,000. This shows customers are taking advantage of the number of deals on offer from the 40 suppliers in the market as they continue to fight for customers. Customers should feel confident switching as suppliers have worked hard to ensure the process is hassle-free for all.”
According to new research, energy consumers supplied by the Big Six are paying £4 billion more for their gas and electricity.
