Comment from Co-operative Energy on Ed Miliband's pledge to freeze energy prices

Posted on 24 September 2013

Ramsay Dunning, general manager at Co-operative Energy said: “We welcome the pledge Ed Miliband has made, to freeze energy prices if the party is elected in 2015. A tough approach, like this, is required to tackle the spiralling profits the Big Six continue to enjoy and, most importantly, to create a fairer deal for customers who are struggling or in some cases, unable to pay their energy bills “When we launched Co-operative Energy, which is customer-owned, we pledged to provide customers with consistently competitive prices and to pass on savings in wholesale energy prices. During the winter months of 2011 and 2012, we were the only supplier to decrease and freeze prices for customers. It’s imperative that the Government is committed to making changes to reform the market, rebuild trust amongst consumers and ensure a fair deal for all.”
