Do You Have A Community Energy Partnership?

We all pay too much for our energy, because whatever the politicians do, the Big Six just use their muscle and highly-paid lawyers to get around every attempt that is made to force prices down.

They also can rely on our natural inertia to stop us changing.

So I was particularly pleased to see OVO has setup a community energy partnership in Sussex with Community Energy South.

Everyone should check out their local community energy partnership.

We’re only small consumers but we must give the Big Six as tough a time as possible.

Do you think large consumers of electricity like Network Rail, Transport for London, just roll over and pay what the Big Six think they will charge?

  1. No. Commercial consumers negotiate their contracts for power and are in a much better position due to their large usage. It is very easy to increase charges to individuals due in part to the inertia of customers staying with their current supplier (believing that even if they pay a little more now, the market will rebalance before too long), and the complex charging structures put in place by the suppliers to confuse customers or make them not bother to do the comparison. Commercial coups toners are more willing to do the comparison calculations.

  2. Don’t you hate automatic spelling correctors that manage to turn “customers” into “coups toners”. So much for artificial intelligence.

  3. What would cut my energy use is a smart meter. It’ll be interesting though to see how much my gas bill goes down this winter with a new boiler/precise Heatmiser central heating controllers/a fixed roof and OVO.
