UK Best Fixed Rate Tariff Deal is to NOT FIX Gas and Electric Energy Tariffs During Winter 2021-22 / Personal_Finance / Household Bills

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Gas and electricity prices have surged to extortionate levels and winter has yet to bite sending the fixed rate deals for ALL energy providers soaring in the stratosphere. In my latest video in my inflation mega-trend series I explain why those with expiring tariffs will be making a huge mistake if they now went ahead and fixed their tariffs as energy providers have been eager to get customers to fix ahead of warnings of price highs when the energy cap is lifted in April 2022. This video could literally save you £1000 in making a costly mistake by fixing at the worst possible time at the worst possible rates!

UK Energy Firms Scamming Customers Out of Their Best Fixed Rate Gas Tariffs / Personal_Finance / Household Bills

By: Nadeem_Walayat

UK Gas Market Panic! Apparently energy firms are going bust, or are they? Wh at's the odds most of these firms going bust are going to soon reappear under a slightly different name with probably the same staff and premises. We are being SCAMMED! UK Energy customers are being SCAMMED out of their Fixed rate tariffs because the greedy basket energy firms did NOT HEDGE the natural gas price that they were busy encouraging prospective customers to fix at! Now they want to cancel the contracts by offloading the customers onto the regulators who is then going to dump the customers onto other energy firms on much higher tariffs, probably TRIPLE the tariffs that the customers had been fixed at. What a CON! What a SCAM! The directors of any energy company perpetuating such as scam should be blacklisted!

ISupply Energy Consumer Warning - Never Put Your Account Into Credit! / ConsumerWatch / Household Bills

By: N_Walayat

ISupply Energy is one of many small gas and electricity suppliers to UK customers at generally competitive prices. Unfortunately they are able to achieve their competitive prices through having far less overheads in terms of systems in place to manage their customer accounts. I say unfortunately for when things go wrong then communicating with the likes of Isupply energy is literally like talking to a brick wall as has been my experience over the past 18 months as an electricity customer.

So why I am not happy if their electricity prices are competitive against the likes of the bigger players such as NPower, British Gas and Scottish Energy?

Should Energy Companies Ripping off Customers be Nationalised? / ConsumerWatch / Household Bills

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Ofgem, Britains' toothless energy regulator announced today what customers already knew that Britians' six main energy suppliers (British Gas, E.ON, Scottish Power, Scottish & Southern Energy, EDF Energy) are ripping off their customers to the tune of more than £170 each per annum. In the face of a 75% fall in the whole gas price energy suppliers have raised prices by 20% on a year earlier, this is AFTER a 35% price hike during mid 2008. The industry representatives have publically replied that they may even raise energy prices further despite the fact that average wholesale prices for power has halved over the past 12 months which is reflected in projected profits for the sector of £4 billion over the next 12 months.
