Energy suppliers move to lower gas and electricity prices

Between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with Uswitch saved £479 or more.

Senior executives at three of the UK's largest energy firms have said they will move to lower gas and electricity prices for their customers soon.

Chiefs at ScottishPower, E.ON and EDF Energy told the government's climate change committee that an announcement on prices was likely soon.

Executives did not give any specifics on potential prices reductions.

"We're well aware that two of our largest competitors have set dates from which a decrease will take place. We don't want to lose any customers and therefore we are likely to move soon," said Nick Horler, chief executive of ScottishPower.

However, earlier this week Horler said significant price drops would not happen in the foreseeable future and the debate on prices should be left behind in favour of talks about what to do with the UK's ageing energy grid.

Meanwhile, E.ON U.K.'s commercial director of retail Jim MacDonald said a decision had not been taken yet but reassured the committee that the move would come soon.
