Do you wish you could save money on your energy bills but don’t really know how or where to go about it? It is one of those household jobs that can have a huge impact on family finances but one of the jobs I shy away from. I always think it will be a faff, to time consuming and I will end up having to fill in loads of forms. Therefore it remains on my to do list for ever. When really I should tackle it head on – especially now that the process has been made simple by Flipper.
Did you know?
• UK customers are paying much more than they need to for their household energy. It’s estimated that customers are overpaying by £1.7m more than they would in a competitive market.
• 70% of customers on a standard energy tariff are not getting the best deal on their energy.
• While many consumers are aware that they could be saving money by switching energy providers, it’s estimated that 85% of UK consumers (24.6m households) don’t switch because the process is too difficult and time-consuming.
How Flipper takes the hassle away
Flipper Community, a personal energy management service, is providing a solution to this problem, and helping to tackle the inequality in the energy market. Once signed up Flipper automatically searches for the best deals and the hard work. Signing up was quick and easy, all you need to know is who is your energy provider and the account details.
On average,Flipper Community customers save around £200-£300 a year on their energy, switching a minimum of four times a year. Nothing needs installing, and customers can join at any time – even if they’re in the middle of a pre-existing energy contract. The great part is that Flipper don’t switch you until you are saving £50 – this means that the savings really count and it will quickly mount up. Flipper charge a £25 a year fee for the service but they don’t take any money until they have saved you that first £50 therefore it makes total sense and as a customer you can only save money. Therefore this is perfect for busy people who want to save money.
