Ovo Energy reduce tariff 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.

Following on from last year's energy price hikes, Ovo Energy has followed in the footsteps of Co-Operative Energy in lowering its tariffs, according to an article published by Reuters.

Both new and existing customers who renew their contracts will now see a five per cent reduction in fixed dual-fuel rates.

The price cut has been attributed to drop in the price of wholesale energy.

Stephen Fitzpatrick, Ovo Energy's managing director, spoke about the decision.

He said: "Due to a recent decrease in wholesale costs, we are able to respond and pass on these savings to consumers, thereby giving them a cheaper and simpler alternative to the 'Big Six."

Consumer Focus, a supporter of the upcoming Big Energy Week, has welcomed the move and as a result has urged others to take similar action to find cheaper gas and electricity.

Director of energy at Consumer Focus, Audrey Gallacher, said: "The gap between wholesale and retail prices remains a fault line for consumer confidence in the energy market."
