Winter Price Cap Highly Unlikely

It is claimed that Theresa May’s energy price cap will not be live until next year.

Ofgem have suggested that due to time constraints around the creation of new legislation, this winter is much too optimistic a target.

The creation and passing of the proposed price cap could take up to as long as 12 months to construct, with an additional 2 months to complete implementation.

The cap will ensure that up 12 million consumers will see a reduction in their bills.

A Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy spokesperson said: “As the regulator says, the energy market is not working for all consumers and the proposed bill will give consumers peace of mind on the price they pay for their energy.”

“We have been clear that this market needs reforming and as the Prime Minister announced, we will publish draft legislation on an energy price cap covering all customers on default tariffs this week.”

Chief Executive of Ofgem, Dermot Nolan stated: “Ofgem shares the government’s concern that the energy market is not working for all consumers and is determined to reduce the detriment suffered by those overpaying for their energy, particularly those who are vulnerable.”

“In the meantime, we expect suppliers to do more to get customers on poor value default tariffs onto better deals.”

““We also expect suppliers to co-operate when Ofgem initially introduces a safeguard tariff for around 1 million vulnerable households this winter. ”
