Ofgem decision on default tariffs for domestic customers at the end of fixed-term contracts

Post by ALEO Admin » Wed Oct 11, 2017 4:23 pm

On 11 October 2017, Ofgem announced the decision on its recent consultation on default tariffs for domestic customers at the end of fixed-term contracts.

Ofgem has decided to allow suppliers, at the end of a fixed-term contract, to roll a customer that has not made an active choice onto a further fixed-term tariff, as long as that further tariff:
- Does not have any penalties for early termination
- Is the same price or cheaper than the variable tariff that the customer would otherwise have been rolled onto; and
- Is similar in nature to the customer’s current tariff, taking into account their characteristics and preferences (including in respect of tariff type, online account management, meter type and payment method).
