Consumers are getting more choosy about which company they buy electricity from, figures show.

The Electricity Authority figures show about 30,000 customers have switched electricity suppliers each month for the past three months.

The number is almost as high as in 2001, in the early days of the government push to get electricity consumers to shop around.
