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.

Super helpful and easy to work with

"Recommend this company in a heartbeat - Nicole Borneuf was super easy to talk to, was not pushy in the slightest, very helpful and replied with all my questions very professionally and did all she could to help. I had to deal with a few companies to sort my business energy out, all but Nicole were too pushy for my liking and I refused to follow through with them. Thank Nicole - you are a credit to your company, thank you for making the stressful energy change so easy."

An Extremely Competent Company

"Switch my business has not only helped my SME secure a good energy deal for the second year running but Jessica swiftly found a alternative supplier for me when I was let down on the day of switching by the new contractual provider I had chosen some 4 months previously. Being suddenly out of contract and without provider is everyone's energy nightmare. Greatest thanks."

Quick & Easy

"Kabibi was very helpful and the whole process was very efficient. The one small reservation I had was that I was phoned up by Kabibi almost immediately having received my online quote - which wasn't enough time for me to finish reading the quotes! Fortunately she was able to assist me in a greater savings on both Gas & Electricity, and so as long as the switchover is seamless I will remain very happy with the service."
