    We've already cut energy prices

    Energy companies have had a lot of bad press in the last year, so this spring we were please to share some good news.

    We reduced our energy prices in March, saving the typical gas and electricity customer £38 a year2.

    No ifs, no buts, no energy price rises before 2016

    We've frozen our standard gas and electricity prices until 2016~.

    It's a commitment that every single one of our domestic customers can take advantage of.

    So regardless of whether you've been with us five years or five minutes, you can enjoy peace of mind when it comes to the price of your energy.

    It's something we hope will make a difference to customers who are worried about rising bills.
