Comment from Co-operative Energy on the Big Six objecting to Ed Miliband's price freeze pledge

Posted on 25 September 2013

Ramsay Dunning, general manager at Co-operative Energy said: “It’s no surprise to see the Big Six objecting to Ed Miliband’s pledge to freeze energy prices from 2015 until 2017. The British energy industry has been in the grip of a stranglehold by these companies for far too long. “We believe it doesn’t have to be this way and something has got to change to help energy customers all over the UK who are not only confused and deprived of any real choice but worryingly for many, unable to pay their energy bills. “As we are owned by our customers and members, Co-operative Energy’s main focus is on the energy customer and not profits. “We are outlining a series of measures that we hope will make policy makers and the Big Six sit up and take note but also show energy customers that they do have a choice. We are sticking firmly to our original objective from when we launched over two years ago which called for complete transparency and fairness in the energy industry.  We believe this translates to every part of the industry from all energy firms doing business properly and efficiently to abolishing restrictive rules that are not in the best interests of the energy user and the pioneering of new ways of working which make it easier to generate and sign up for community generated energy.”
