Energy regulator Ofgem has introduced tougher rules on fixed term contracts.
The new rules, which come into force today, include:
- Fixed means fixed - customers on fixed term tariffs are given certainty on price
- Automatic roll-overs on to another fixed term deal when a contract ends are banned
Ofgem believes these reforms will lead to simpler energy tariffs from the end of December.
