From 3 April 2017 the non-domestic water market will open to competition, but with just over a month to go, are customers aware that they will have the opportunity to switch supplier with the opportunity to make considerable savings?
Research by Ofwat suggests that just one third of customers are aware of these changes, with two thirds still oblivious to the fact they will be able to switch water supplier from the 3rd of April. In fact, customers may only learn about these changes once they receive a new bill and wonder where it has come from.
The most drastic change in the water industry since privatisation, this development will allow for either negotiation with your existing supplier or the opportunity to select a new supplier altogether.
