Tory energy price cap is nothing but hot air | New Statesman

Analysis by the Big Deal collective shows that customers on standard deals with the big six energy companies can end up paying £225 more than their cheapest deal. These are loyal customers, who are quite simply being ripped off by the Big Six, who for too long have had a stranglehold on our energy market.

Even more worryingly, recently a leaked transcript demonstrated just how much the government is influenced by the Big Six players. The transcript referred to discussions between government and energy investors and illustrated a clear willingness of the government to drop the proposed price cap if energy companies made efforts to reduce consumer bills.

This is simply not good enough. It’s time for this ailing government to take clear and robust action to get a better deal for the British public.

    Also time, for those that can, to switch away from the big six. In the end they want our custom and if they’re not getting it they will do something. Too many people are just apathetic, happy to “moan in the pub” but remain inert when it comes to sorting out the problem. I last switched to a fixed tariff 2 years ago and I’m looking around again now. (I’m 70 and not particularly computer savvy. It can be done) Government needs to make sure that those who cannot switch, like those on prepayment meters, are not being charged extra for being poor. It’s usually not their fault!
