Putting Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney at the Heart of Parliament

Energy Switch Guarantee


Over 6,250 people in Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney saved hundreds of pounds on their energy bills

New figures released from the Energy Switch Guarantee (ESG) reveal that 6,256 people in Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney have switched electricity supplier and potentially saved hundreds of pounds during the last year.

The Energy Switch Guarantee is a commitment by energy suppliers - from the largest to some of the newest in the market - to make switching simple, speedy and safe and will soon cover 90 percent of the market. 

Energy Switch Guarantee hosted an event at Parliament on December 6th where Which?Switch was on hand to demonstrate how simple it can be to switch energy supplier and save hundreds of pounds a year. 

Gerald Jones MP said:

"Over 18% of people in Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney have taken advantage of the big savings that are on offer but it would be great to see more join them. Customers can save hundreds of pounds -especially if they have been with the same supplier for years.

“This winter I encourage everyone into take a few minutes to find out if they can be on a better energy deal. If you haven’t switched before you might think it is a bit daunting but as I found out, it’s simple. And with the Energy Switch Guarantee in place customers can be reassured that switching will be simple, speedy and safe so make sure your supplier has signed up.”

Tina Tietjen, Independent Chair of the Energy Switch Guarantee, said:

“Over 4.5 million customers have switched energy supplier so far this year and while some areas of the country - like Yorkshire in particular – are taking advantage of the potential savings on offer, others are missing out.

“It only takes a few minutes to find out if you’re on the best deal. Either get in touch with your supplier or look online to make sure you are on the best deal for you. There are huge savings to be made and the Energy Switch Guarantee provides customers with extra reassurance that the process will be simple, speedy and safe.”
