In Britain, one of the biggest barriers to energy switching is customer apathy. This apathy is born from the notion that switching you energy supplier is a lengthy and complicated process.
According to recent findings by the Government's Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), only 1% of Britain’s households are proactive about switching their energy onto a better deal. This translates to around 13.5 million households across the UK that are paying too much for their energy, meaning that Britain, as a nation, overspends by an eye watering total of £2.7 billion.
Since the 5th of October, the DECC has been on a mission to encourage more British consumers to be proactive about switching their energy. Through the “Power to Switch” campaign, the DECC is spreading the message that the average British household can save on average £200 by switching their energy, and it takes just 15 minutes to do.
Savings of this calibre are enough to rival the money earned by the rich and famous – and to prove it, we’ve put together a quiz. See if you’ve got the celebrity knowledge to guess which stars earn £200 every 15 minutes by taking the quiz below.
