Ofgem launches new campaign to turn Brits into “energy shoppers”
Energy regulator Ofgem has just started the ‘Be An Energy Shopper’ campaign aimed at getting more customers to start hunting for better energy deals, the organization has recently revealed.
Research carried out by Ofgem reveals Brit households don’t place a particularly high level of importance on shopping for their energy bills. Shockingly, almost half (43%) of Brits admit they don’t prioritise ‘energy shopping’ to find the best deal, despite the fact that it could save them precious pounds.
As part of the ‘Be An Energy Shopper’ campaign, an easy guide has been created to help cut through the confusion previously associated with comparing energy tariffs and in turn help people to start shopping around for their energy.
Dermot Nolan, Chief Executive at Ofgem says, “We shop and compare prices for many things in life, yet we often don’t think to do the same when it comes to our energy bills, even when we could be saving around £200. Previously, people found it difficult to compare tariffs and the process too time consuming but the recent reforms have changed things for the better. With the introduction of ‘Be An Energy Shopper’ it has never been easier to go energy shopping and get a better deal on your gas and electricity.”
Switching tariffs in order to get the best possible deal is certainly a step forward, but installing a solution designed to slash energy usage and bills by up to 30%+ is what every home owner should really look at, if they want to save money.
The HeatingSave Building Energy Management System helps customers save more than 30% on their bills by optimizing any heating system’s overall functionality. This is done by taking into account a variety of factors, such as internal and external temperatures, occupancy, time of the year, the particular characteristics of installed boilers, etc. All of the data is used in order to determine the best heating patterns for the various heating zones within any building, using our proprietary heat-loss algorithm.
The end result is that users still get a very good level of comfort, while in the same time saving energy and money in the process.
