Comment from Co-operative Energy following the Government’s announcement to reduce energy bills

Posted on 1 December 2013

Ramsay Dunning, Co-operative Energy’s group general manager said: “We welcome the Government’s decision to take some of the costs off customers’ bills, and to change the ECO scheme to help more people than previously. This is great news for customers who are struggling to pay their bills, but it will also ensure that there is still investment in energy saving improvements for homes and bills are reduced even further.

“In anticipation of the move and as part of our commitment to put customers first, Co-operative Energy removed ECO costs from bills in early November, which means our customers have already benefited from the decision. We challenge all other suppliers to pass on the saving and where they’ve implemented price rises, provide customers with a rebate.

“With regard to the Warm Home Discount, we welcome the recognition from the Government, following our campaigning, that social measures to help people stay warm in decent energy efficient housing, and be able to afford it, are the Government’s responsibility, just as it's the responsibility of the energy industry to replace dirty polluting power stations with clean efficient ones.”
