United Kingdom: Do Your Bit Send a Message to the Big Six!

Leave a comment

Now finally the government of the United Kingdom have finally decided to do something about the Big Six power companies here in the United Kingdom, we should also as a people here send a clear message to them by simply switching power suppliers to the smaller independents!

I have done it myself switching from EDF to Ovo Energy a smaller power company which is both cheaper and uses more Ecological sound power sources. Strangely it is the best thing I have done, even if I am on a fixed price tariff, as much to my surprise my electricity and gas bills in real turns are a lot cheaper.

As I have said here before we here in the United Kingdom need to send a message to the Big Six Power companies we are not prepared to pay the overcharged prices and take the excuses for them any more.

What I think we here in the United Kingdom forget is we do have the power to change things in this case by changing power suppliers to alternatives to the Big Six sending the message to them we will not stand for their actives any more!

For those outside of the United Kingdom the Big Six Power companies are:

E.On, EDF, SSE, Scottish Power, British Gas, Npower

United Kingdom: The Big Six Finally Face the Music!

Leave a comment

It has only taken the present government of the United Kingdom almost all of their term of office with Ofgen being their hatchet man to finally stand up to the Big Six Power Companies who have been overcharging people for their gas and electricity and running a cartel to keep the prices up for consumers here in the United Kingdom.

It has been both their actions and the Banks which both caused and have prolonged the credit crunch here in the United Kingdom both have been responsible for the damage to the economy here. The Big Six especially which have caused major financial problems to the large majority of citizens here In the United Kingdom especially those who are on low wages who have seen more and more of their wages disappear to the Big Six just to keep living a normal life.

My personal view it is high time the British Government actually got off if it’s backside and did something about the Big Six though the only reason why the current Conservative Government here in the United Kingdom are doing anything is because the elections are due in the next few years and frankly they need every vote to get back into power.

What the Big Six with their allies in government done, large majority of which are members of the Conservative party here, have succeed doing is bring the country to it knees economically over the past decades over charging both people and businesses for their energy.

It his high time that both the Big Six and those within the Conservative Party who privatized the energy industry in the first place and now support face the music and I think I am not only one who is calling for them to face the justice system for the damage they have done to the United Kingdom.

All of us here in the United Kingdom should make sure the government cannot back down from dealing with the Big Six by actually using people power and or voices to keep the politicians focused on the battle and if they back down we should make sure the present government pays the price by not voting for them in the next General Election.

The battle line have been drawn and time we as a people here in United Kingdom fight for a better deal for our energy both from the Government and Power Companies!

For those outside of the United Kingdom the Big Six Power companies which have been both overcharging and running a cartel here are:

E.On, EDF, SSE, Scottish Power, British Gas, Npower

UK: Give Big Six Power Companies the Heave Ho!

Leave a comment

I have recently changed my power supplier at my home here in the United Kingdom to one of the smaller power companies not directly associated with the big six power companies which include EDF and British Gas.

Yes, I have moved into a smaller house in time but even so with two bills over a similar period of time at the new house and the bill from the new power company is cheaper by a significant amount than the previous supplier which was one of the big six here in the United Kingdom.

It has certainly opened my eyes to the fact just how excessive the big six here in the United Kingdom have charged for gas and electricity even with the excuse that they have to invest in the power grid and generation. It has highlighted to me just how much they have profiteered off the backs of people like myself over the years.

Even with the fact the smaller power companies do not invest as much in the power grid and generation it makes me wonder just how they can charge prices for gas and electricity which are significantly less and still make money?

My personal opinion like all older and more established companies here in the United Kingdom the big six power companies basically put profits and shareholders before customers even to the detriment of the United Kingdom itself.

I would recommend that everyone in the United Kingdom do what I have done recently and turn their back on the big six power companies and sign up with the smaller power company en mass. As it is easy to do and if enough of us do it the big six grip on gas and electricity here would be broken for once and for all time.

Plus it would only take a small percentage of people to switch to start to worry the big six as they are so profit and money orientated even a small drop in profits with get them to stand up and think!
