Ofgem wake up to reality
The National Right to Fuel Campaign is relieved that Ofgem has finally woken up today to the reality that the competitive energy market in the UK does not work. This is the harsh reality that millions of fuel poor households have faced for many years. We know this because our stakeholders are the charities and other organisations who are working every day to help bring more heat and light to vulnerable households.
But Ofgem cannot solve this problem on their own. The big six energy companies are allowed to operate as a legal cartel because of the energy market structures that we have in place in the UK. What households need now is a Government that will make radical changes to the market to encourage energy companies to serve their customers not maximise profit for shareholders.
