Smart Energy GB response to Ofgem's announcement on faster switching

13th February 2018

Smart Energy GB has responded to Ofgem's announcement of its decision to implement reliable next-day switching for energy customers.

Robert Cheesewright, Director of Policy and Communications at Smart Energy GB, said:

“Fast and reliable switching for every customer is a key perk of the new, modernised energy infrastructure that smart meters are bringing to Great Britain.

“It is encouraging to see that Ofgem has given industry the go-ahead for making next-day switching a reality – ensuring that switching regulations keep up to speed with our nation’s new digital system.   

“Smart meters give you the information you need to make educated choices about the right supplier and tariff for you. Smart meters also enable faster switching, flexible time-of-use tariffs, and a better deal for prepayment customers. Contact your energy supplier today to arrange your upgrade at no extra cost to you.”
