Inquiry will take years to implement ... people need lower bills NOW
Responding to the Ofgem announcement today, Henry de Zoete, former government adviser and co-founder of ThisIsTheBigDeal.com, said:
"All this inquiry does is push the issue further down the road. It will take years to report, and even longer to implement. Meanwhile, the energy companies will be delighted to continue business as usual. But when energy bills have doubled people need help now.
"How many more winters before bills come down? The only way for people to challenge the Big Six and get cheaper energy bills now is to group together. There's power in numbers."
The Big Deal is a national campaign for cheaper energy bills. It brings people together to harness their collective buying power and deliver lower bills.
