As Npower becomes the fourth major energy provider to cut annual gas bills by just £32, comparison website Gocompare.com is urging disgruntled consumers to take matters into their own hands and save up to £292* on their gas and electricity bills by ditching their standard tariffs.
Ben Wilson, energy spokesperson at Gocompare.com, said: “Npower are offering their loyal customers a tiny £32 saving - only on gas and only at the end of the winter period. They are banking on the hope that Npower customers won’t notice that they can save almost 10 times that amount by switching to a best-buy dual fuel tariff.
“We are calling on all ‘big six’ customers to reject their providers’ £32 price cuts. Such a minor saving is almost a joke, but consumers can still have the last laugh. The top 10 dual fuel best-buys are now all under £780, on average, representing a potentially huge saving for those that switch.”
