Close to half of British businesses have never switched energy suppliers, research reveals

Almost half (47%) of all UK businesses have never changed energy suppliers while an astounding 20% are not even aware that they can do so, which means that it’s harder for them to cut energy usage, a recent market survey has been able to reveal.

The survey of more than 2,000 small business owners and decision makers also found that 75% – or 3.9 million – of firms think they pay too much for gas and electricity and almost the same number know for a fact that savings could be made.

Switching energy suppliers or tariffs are seen as a “hassle” by 28% of businesses, while nearly half (46%) fear costs and fees attached to moving to a new supplier and are “nervous about the increase in paperwork” while more than a quarter (27%) believe switching will cause a disruption to their energy supply.
