Supply of gas and electricity has become a mishmash of competing companies all claiming they offer the best deals. The Big Six energy companies have been severely criticised for making huge profits at a time when fuel prices worldwide collapsed in 2016 but have since risen again, mainly due to problems with Iran, one of the biggest OPEC produces. On line pressure group 38 Degrees has even suggested a possible boycott of the big six until they take notice. Certainly there seems to be no logic to the prices and companies depend on the majority of people finding it too much bother to move. On top of this there is a whole industry of companies who make a living from the commission that can be made by moving people from one company to another. Some have no incentive to find you the best deal. They may just suggest the company which pays the biggest commission. As an example one of my contacts moved from a big six company to the lesser know First Utility. The previous company was going to put his monthly bill up to over £130. He now pays £76 a month for dual fuel for a large detached house and was still incredit.
My own opinion is that far too much money is being wasted on this constant changing. They must be employing additional staff who do nothing but process the changes. The government i.e. OFGEM, should fine companies using such tactics, which cost people such huge amounts, particularly those who haven't the ability (for one reason or another) to keep changing supplier.
