Citizens Advice responds to E.On’s price cut
16 January 2012
Gillian Guy, Chief Executive at national charity Citizens Advice said:
“E.On’s customers will be pleased to see that the company has cut its prices – making that five out of the six big energy companies to do so within a week. We hope it's not long before Scottish Power makes it a full house. When wholesale prices drop, so too should customer’s bills.”
Today is the start of Citizens Advice Big Energy Week campaign helping people save money on heating and powering their home. There are over 100 events across the country and information available from all Citizens Advice Bureaux.
