The Government estimates that 13.5 million households across the UK are missing out on their share of £2.7 billion by remaining with their existing energy company.
Residents in Salford can benefit by shopping around and taking advantage of the best energy deals on the market. Many people who switch for the first time find that they can save around £200 - and some can save even more.
Even if you have switched before it can still be worth checking periodically to see if you can make any further savings.
For general information on switching tariff or finding a price comparison website visit the Citizens Advice website.
Comparison sites are a useful way to get started when shopping around for energy. All the Ofgem approved sites listed below are independent, and the options and prices you find on them should be calculated and displayed in a fair and unbiased way - meaning you can be a confident energy shopper.
The team are able to give advice on fuel and other forms of debt.
