For a long time the energy market has been the perfect storm of higher prices, manufactured complexity and consumer confusion. Everyone wants a simpler more trusted market.
(PRWEB UK) 26 June 2013
The new regulations proposed by the energy regulator Ofgem will require energy companies to offer four core tariffs which will replace the multiple price plans on offer currently, reports the Telegraph in the article Simpler Bills by Summer In Radical Energy Reforms, on June 21. Ofgem has also set up a comparative system which allows customers to see the different prices on offer from energy companies. Under the reforms, the energy companies will notify customers of the savings they can make if they switch to a different price plan. If the energy companies do not appeal the reforms, they will be put in place by this summer, with changes to tariffs effective by the end of the year.
The director of policy at the Consumer Futures, Adam Scorer, told the Telegraph that:
“For a long time, the energy market has been the perfect storm of higher prices, manufactured complexity and consumer confusion. Everyone wants a simpler more trusted market. There is a lot in this reform package that could bring that closer. Now Ofgem needs to get on and implement it and the energy companies need to respond to the spirit of the reforms.”
