Big Six energy supplier gives in to pressure
Six million British Gas customers can breathe a sigh of relief as the energy giant is set to freeze its standard tariffs for the winter.
The news comes after SSE, another energy supplier, announced plans to cap standard household energy tariffs until April 2017.
The BBC reported that Ian Conn, the chief executive of British Gas’s parent company Centrica, met Business Secretary Greg Clark to talk about the plans.
It is understood that standard tariffs will remain the same at least until the end of March 2017.
“Energy companies should be doing much more than simply freezing their prices this winter,” said Alex Neill, the managing director of home and legal services at Which?.
“We want them to set out what they’re doing to genuinely engage with customers who are stuck on these poor-value deals.”
