Co-op Energy announce an actual price cut!
The deranged mob in question is Co-operative Energy and they’ll be cutting their prices from February 2012, by an average of 3 per cent. Granted, it’s not a major cut, but they say that it’ll make them cheaper than the standard tariffs of the ‘Big Six’ in all 14 regions.
Their spokestalker, Nigel Mason, said: “This autumn's exceptionally mild weather has led to a drop in wholesale prices so we're passing on those savings as soon as we possibly can. Hopefully this will be welcome news in the run up to Christmas.” Yep - screw Jesus: from now on, Christmas will always be about celebrating the anniversary of the first Co-operative Energy price cut.
Co-operative Energy have only been pumping gas and firing electricity at people since May 2011, but they pride themselves on their simplicity, with just one tariff available that tracks wholesale energy prices. And, as it’s the Co-op, customers can also earn a dividend. Crazy hippy madness – it surely can’t last…
