Getting Better Deals on Energy Bills

It's always good to get advice from local experts. James Ringshall in Claygate is the Managing Director of Oroco Utilities, which run a free website service that compares energy deals to help find the best one.  You can check out the website here.

It chimes with a wider policy initiative I am engaged with, namely promoting 'group switching' of customers between energy firms, to maximise consumer leverage. You can read about it from page 4 of Capitalism for the Little Guy, a paper I published for the Centre for Policy Studies.

Promoting switching is a good consumer-driven way to expand competition, without resorting to Labour's economically damaging gimmicks like price controls. I will be meeting up with expeerts from consumer magazine Which? in the weeks ahead, to see how we can take this forward.
