UK energy: true competition at last...

The move heralds the realization of full price competition, five years after competition began for domestic gas and three years after it began for domestic electricity. However, for everyone to benefit from the competitive market, the regulator and the energy companies will need to make fuel-poor and pre-payment customers aware of the savings they can make through switching supplier.
