CMA findings as reported by Theenergyst.com highlight the problem of small firms doing nothing when their energy contract comes up for renewal.
The CMA said that suppliers were making high profits from disengaged small business customers (twice the margin they make in the domestic market and four times the margin made in the I&C market). On average, firms were paying around a third more on rollover tariffs for electricity than retention tariffs, and around a quarter more for gas, according to the CMA’s figures. Meanwhile those on deemed tariffs were paying at least two thirds more for electricity and gas than those on retention tariffs.
The remedie is obvious: contact your trusted energy broker like ALPINE UTILITIES LTD with your bills and we will search the market for a cheaper tariff and sort out your renewal next year.
