Greater protection for businesses under new Ofgem proposals

Small businesses at risk as energy costs rise

Proposals to provide greater protection to UK small businesses on energy bills have been launched by the energy regulator Ofgem.

Ofgem’s proposals will help to ensure businesses receive the highest standards of service and more clarity on the costs being paid to third party brokers.

Ofgem said that it has listened to business groups, who warned that firms require more support with energy issues and has developed the proposals to ‘ensure better deals, better protection and more clarity for businesses‘.

The energy regulator has opened a consultation on the implementation of a new set of rules for suppliers to make sure they improve customer service and clearly outline costs for customers.

Tina McKenzie, Policy Chair at the Federation of Small Businesses, said:

‘We welcome the launch of the consultation on Ofgem’s proposals to provide greater protection for businesses. It shows the energy regulator has listened to our calls to take action against poor customer services and narrow the treatment gap between small businesses and domestic customers.’
