660,000 customers moved to a new electricity supplier in April

According to Energy UK, more than 660,000 consumers changed their electricity supplier in April – bringing the year’s total to more than two million.

Energy prices are climbing, which will of course make consumers hunt around for the best deal. There are a variety of perks thrown into energy switch deals now, from movie tickets to fluffy toys.

However, are consumers missing the best method of reducing their energy bill?

Reduce your energy usage

By reducing your energy usage, you will reduce your energy bill. Simples.

Advances in technology mean that houses can be upgraded to LED lighting without a significant upfront cost. In most cases, LED lighting can save up to 80% of energy when compared to traditional bulbs.  Watch the video below to see proof.

It’s not all lighting either.

Just by changing your shower head to an aerated model that mixes in air to maintain good pressure but keep water flow rate down will save you on your energy bill. Less water means less energy required to heat that water up.

Energy saving habits

You don’t even need to spend a penny to reduce your energy bill. You just need to change your habits.

  • Turn lights off in rooms you’re not in
  • Freezer empty? Fill it with ice
  • Turn off Wi-Fi when not in use
  • Don’t leave phone on charge overnight
  • Don’t leave laptops plugged in
  • Don’t leave the TV on standby
  • Don’t leave games consoles on standby.

Changing to renewable energy

As well as looking for the best deal, consumers are also starting to look for providers that use renewable energy. However, renewable energy is usually a bit more expensive than its counterpart – making it difficult for people to make the move when also trying to reduce their spend.

That’s where we come in.

We have partnered with Green star Energy to provide new customers with an exclusive tariff that allows consumers to switch to renewable energy whilst also saving money.

New customers will receive an Enviropack with five energy saving products that can save up to £94 a year.
