Ofgem toughens rules on fixed term energy contracts

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.
