Energy consumers in Maryland, Illinois and Washington are able to switch energy suppliers by simply taking a photograph of their electricity bill and sending it to Point Click Switch (PCS) using their smartphone. PCS then provides the sender with competitive electricity rates, helping consumers save money and reduce the need for extensive research into suppliers with the lowest rates. The new technology has been deemed the “utility bill selfie” helping customers choose their most suited provider by delivering a supplier rate comparison within 48 hours.

Phil Croskey, Point Click Switch, chief executive and co-founder told PR.com, ‘In today’s changing global environment, it’s important to provide consumers with options to limit carbon emissions and other harmful impacts on the environment. Our new service aims to make choosing the right energy supplier fast and convenient, not to mention save our customers a good bit of money!’
