Customers Hunt for Lower Utility Bills as Scottish & Southern Energy Joins British Gas and Raises Prices

 
[28-July-2011]
 

LONDON, July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


The recent price rises from Scottish & Southern Energy, British Gas and Scottish Power may lead to more householders turning to price comparison sites to seek better deals, according to comparethemarket.com.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change has said that one in five families currently struggle to pay their gas and electricity bills, with official figures showing 5.5 million households are affected by fuel poverty. Following the recent price increases from utility companies, experts have warned that the number is now likely to rise to 6.5 million.

Jeremy Moll, Commercial Director at comparethemarket.com, said: "With the price rises coming hard on the heels of the cold winter in 2010 and continuing fears about the economy, we expect to see many more householders looking for savings and specifically fixed deals on their gas and electricity.  

"By clicking on to comparethemarket.com to search for a better deal on their household utility bills in 2010, savvy customers saved themselves £4,695,660 in just one year.* We look forward to helping more customers find better deals on their utility bills this year too."

comparethemarket.com works in partnership with TheEnergyShop.com to help customers find the right product at the right price for them from gas and electricity suppliers.

It also offers comparisons for a number of other household utilities including phone, broadband and digital TV as well as a wide range of insurance and financial products ranging from home, van, bike, life and pet insurance to credit cards and mortgages.

*The saving of £4,695,660 is based on customers making an average saving of £289.44 over the period of January-December 2010
