Compare the Market and the Daily Mirror are launching The Great British Switch

Dear Graham, Energy bills have increased by over 100% in the last decade. The market is no longer working for ordinary people, and both government and regulators are struggling to find a credible solution.

That is why Compare the Market and the Daily Mirror are launching The Great British Switch, on 15 and 16 March, which will allow consumers to take control of their energy bills. Research published by the independent regulator, Ofgem, found that 68 per cent of those who switched gas suppliers and 70 per cent of those who switched electricity suppliers in 2012/2013 believe they have saved money.

It is our belief that increased competition in the energy market will lead to better outcomes for consumers.

Kind Regards, Paul Galligan, Managing Director, comparethemarket.com
