Pure Planet has become the latest supplier to sign up to the Energy Switch Guarantee which is providing greater confidence to consumers to shop around for the best energy deal. 

Meanwhile, switching figures continue to rise with the latest monthly figures from August showing a sharp increase of 30 per cent on last year’s figures.

The Energy Switch Guarantee is a series of commitments under which suppliers who have signed up promise to make the switching process for consumers simple, speedy and safe.

Tina Tietjen, Independent Chairman of the Energy Switch Guarantee said: “More and consumers are switching supplier but to keep these numbers growing, it is important all suppliers commit to make the process simpler for consumers who might be reluctant. I am pleased to see Pure Planet has made this pledge and hope more suppliers follow shortly.”

Andrew Ralston, Pure Planet’s co-founder and chief executive, said: “Pure Planet has made switching swifter and faster still via mobile. You can sign up in 60 seconds. We are currently the fastest any supplier transfer can be under current rules at only 17 days.

“Customers can get access to renewable electricity and carbon off-set gas in record time. We’re proud to be part of the Energy Switch Guarantee scheme that gives consumers the ultimate peace of mind.”
