Britain's energy market is broken, the shadow energy and climate change minister has said, after regulator Ofgem found that energy supplier E.ON has mis-sold to customers. Jonathan Reynolds said in a statement:
E.ON is just the latest in a long line of energy companies to be found guilty of misleading the public. The energy giants must know that if they mistreat customers already facing a cost-of-living crisis there will be a very heavy price to pay.
Our plans will break up the big energy companies, put an end to their secret deals and make tariffs simpler and fairer.
E.ON has said it will compensate customers it may have mis-sold to. Find out how to make a claim.
E.ON boss Tony Cocker has apologised after the energy firm was found to be misleading customers, according to an investigation by Ofgem.
