Big energy company doesn't like little energy company
The Big Six energy companies are in a BAD MOOD recently – they can feel the threat of getting their £2million a year bonus lollipops taken away from them and they’re about to go into full tantrum mode.
Today, they’re moaning that small energy companies get away with less environmental and social levies than the bigger ones. E.On doesn’t like it. It’s not FAIR. It’s really really absolutely isn’t. Tony Cocker (Cockup) from E.On is very cross indeed, because these levies take up 8% of the average bill. So smaller companies can change less and have an unfair advantage over the big ones.
‘The small companies are exempt from a number of environmental and social obligations,’ he said, his bottom lip wobbling.
Ovo Energy, who sound suspiciously like a feminist theatre group but in actual fact provide gas and electricity, hit back, saying that they were cheaper and naaa naaa neeee naaa naaaa.
‘I can tell you, of the four companies that have raised their prices, we are around £160 cheaper.’ Said Ovo’s Stephen Fitzpatrick. ‘So that's about 12% to 13% for a customer of average consumption.’
Hmm, could this petty little squabble be an indication that big energy companies are feeling threatened?
