Citizens Advice aims to help compare business energy suppliers

The Citizens Advice Bureau is considering publishing business energy supplier performance statistics, a move that may encourage more competition and better deals.

To help business energy consumers make an informed choice on the best deal, Citizens Advice is planning to publish an expanded energy ‘league table’ from August 2015. By providing performance information – including on complaints – Citizens Advice will give small businesses “access to the information they need to make informed switching decisions”.

While most of the ‘big six’ offer transparency on performance, Citizens Advice, said that the picture is less clear for the almost 20% of electricity supplied by companies outside the major domestic suppliers. ​The organisation noted that the most recent business energy supplier customer satisfaction research was conducted by Ofgem in 2013 and did not offer any supplier specific information.

Citizens Advice is looking for responses by 19 June.

"Everything was explained clearly by the representative, Mark Weeks, and it made the renewal of our utility supplier painless. Prices quoted were competitive and we were able to secure a better price than expected. The process was quick and efficiently dealt with. Jim, owner of Four Seasons Greengrocers, Crediton, Devon"

"Lorraine, the agent who attended to me, was extremely efficient and professional. The quotations obtained were very competitive and presented in an easily understandable format. All queries were attended to and replies forthcoming speedily. As a representative of the organisation, I could only present the proposals I obtained and, unfortunately, the committee elected to use another company. From my point of view, Lorraine made my task to gather all relevant details very easy and her attitude was professional and courteous throughout. I have no reservations in recommending SmB to other businesses who seek to change energy suppliers."
