just had an amusing email from my energy supplier
Ofgem, the regulator for electricity and gas suppliers in Great Britain, is set to bring in a cap on the rates that consumers can pay for default energy tariffs.
The cap means that we have had to change the prices and remove our dual fuel discount from our Standard Variable tariff.
So by capping the price to ‘save’ the consumer money all of the prices they list have gone up except for gas which has dropped 0.37 of a pence.
luckily i am changing supplier and awaiting change over date but it is funny it’s been capped and has increased!
