The energy con

You'll get the gist quick enough. Feel free to vent about life's rich tapestry and how it pisses you off. But steer clear of other forum members or you will be the target of a virtual kick up the arse.

The energy con

Postby Hillman avenger » Sat Nov 30, 2019 11:13 am

Yes shop around for your energy.
You are a fool if you don't
But if there is real competition, which is supposed to suppress prices, please explain:

1. I am with supplier A and decide to shop around.
2. I find supplier B which looks cheaper.
3. So I contract with supplier B
4. But the energy physically still comes from the same place. And presumably that supplier is happy he makes a profit from doing that.
5. So I have saved some money but I am now in a situation where both B and the actual supplier are making a profit.

What do you think that tells you about margins?

It's a cartel
It should be nationalised.

The cheapest energy from another supplier is 49 pounds and a few pence cheaper.
To leave the supplier I'm with I have to pay a £50 "exit fee".
Those two figures are suspiciously similar.
I really am a biatch

The greatest con of all is electricity. To complete the circuit, the generator has it back.

Could be a ruse to attract Corbyn votes.

Once upon a time you got a loyalty discount; now you get a loyalty slap in the face.
