The energy Minister, Chris Huhne is scheduled to have an interactive session with a number of energy suppliers, consumer groups and people from industry regulator Ofgem as an attempt to address the vital issue of energy saving. In addition, the meet will be observed with a focus on tailoring techniques that can play a role to chop huge gas and electricity bills to relieve consumers.
Earlier during last week, authorities have introduced an industry-funded Warm Home Discount scheme. Under spell of the scheme, most vulnerable subscriber will be entitled to avail £120 rebate off the bills, for the upcoming winter season.
Meanwhile, findings of a recent survey carried out to estimate sales have revealed that a majority of energy providers are least interested to offer power at cheaper rates for any group of consumers. In addition, the report has exposed that out of all providers, one-third never attempts to specify applicable exit fees whereas the Scottish Power was observed top experience immense difficulties to reflect its exit fees, around in nine out of calls made to retrieve the information. On the other hand, the British Gas staff has credited to provide most economic tariff in more than 10 calls.
While commenting on observations, Richard Lloyd, Executive Director of the “Which Council?” marked it as actual outcome of individual inquiry seeking information about cheapest traffic.
