This week , instead of our usual energy news, we’re looking at the General Election. With the release of the main political parties’ manifestos, we now have a much better idea about the plans each has for the UK energy industry.
The common threads?
Both Labour and the Conservatives have spoken about the importance of capping standard variable rates on domestic energy tariffs. Labour have stated that their cap would be temporary and take place alongside wider market reforms. The Conservative’s would be permanent. The idea of a price cap has been controversial, with suppliers unsurprisingly objecting and some stating that a cap would simply mean more expensive fixed tariffs.
All parties emphasise the importance of meeting emissions targets, although they have different ways of going about this.
Below are the key energy pledges from each party’s manifesto…

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."This review was posted by Mia Drew on the 29th of March 2017
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."This review was posted by S McMillan on the 29th of March 2017

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."This review was posted by Amanda Brown on the 21st of March 2017
