If you look purely from a cost saving viewpoint then it can be argued that the opening of the market hasn’t had the desired impact as some SME’s don’t know they can look at switching and the savings on offer are minimal – averaging around the 3-4% mark.
However, for larger uses, whilst the typical discounts do make a difference financially, the main savings come in the form of consolidation of the bills.
