Guernsey company fears States could 'kill off' cheap green electricity

A Guernsey electricity company fears it could be killed off if politicians vote to scrap an independent regulator.

The Little Green Energy Company feels handing control to the States' Trading Supervisory Board would create an unfair playing field as Guernsey Electricity is a stakeholder.

Currently, Guernsey Electricity's tariffs and prices are regulated by Guernsey's Competition and Regulatory Authority, an independent body within an independent board.

But under the new proposals, the States' Trading Supervisory Board would be responsible for setting future pricing structures.
