Energy bills: 30-day notice for price rises now

Consumers must now be told about energy price rises 30 days in advance, rather than being notified up to two months after the event.
The changes made by regulator Ofgem strip away previous rules that meant suppliers had 65 working days after prices had risen to tell customers.

Agree,,,, about time... so now we can start looking for a new supplier BEFORE the price rises, and hope to get better deals, which hopefully will make suppliers think carefully about future rises Undecided Roll eyes
