I talked with my energy provider, eon, yesterday, about a lovely “smart meter” they had provided me with which shows just how expensive it is to boil the kettle. It ended with them saying that I could now be on a better tariff than I was already on, and would I like to take advantage of it?
For energy isn’t created by eon, nor any other “energy provider”. They are just the selling mechanism to get us (the consumers) to buy what we need.
Unfortunately this idea has since been countermanded as a slip of the tongue!
for renting a TV set was doomed to fail, so too the logic of having an electricity or gas account with on anything other than the lowest tariff will inevitably become a thing of the past.
