dc2_72“The UK Prime Minister’s new “clearer pricing policy” has resulted in British Gas (a subsidiary of Centrica) imposing a new standing-charge* which penalises low-income consumers and others trying to save energy.”

“Cameron’s flat tariffs are an attack on the poor and eco-friendly, just like his attack on ‘green taxes’ on energy bills that pay for energy-efficiency measures for the poor.”

I only use a small amount of gas, but the amount I pay has gone up by over 400%. I am now in the process of switching to another supplier.

They are called Ebico and they are the UK’s only not-for-profit energy supplier.


*Standing-charge = we are going to take more money from you, but we are not going to give you anything in return.
