Energy bills need to be fair for everyone. Electricity contracts are designed to penalise people when they can’t pay on time. That means if your bill is lost in the post, you forget the due date, or don’t have enough in money in your bank account, you could be hit by a hefty late payment fee.
These fees are simply unreasonable, and they’re hurting households. That’s why we want to ban pay on time discounts.
And it does it all based on a straightforward, standardised measurement of 100g or 100mL so there’s no sneaky fiddling with the numbers – like when food companies use minuscule serving sizes to make their kilojoules or sugar content appear smaller.
