Energy suppliers speed up switching process


As part of their strategy to bolster their respective customer bases, energy suppliers are starting to speed up their switching processes, with SSE and FirstUtility adjusting the times to just 17 days, a news report can reveal.

The interval also includes a 14-day “cooling off” period during which customers can change their mind.

Jane Bednall, Director of Domestic Energy at SSE said: “Customers are constantly telling us that they find energy complicated and want us to make things easier and more transparent. We are listening to customers and making switching faster and simpler is fundamental to this.”

Ian McCaig, CEO of First Utility called the change “an important milestone for the industry”.

He claimed some of the credit for the change: “It shows what can happen when we challenge the accepted norms within this industry. First Utility firmly believes that consumers deserve better and we will continue to fight for positive change on their behalf.”

This initiative is quite obviously a very commendable one, but if you’re looking for an alternate way of saving up to 30%+ on your energy bills, then HeatingSave is just the thing to consider.

Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.

HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.

Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that HeatingSave is a component part of the Government’s Green Deal program.
