Making commercial tariffs easy



The UK commercial electricity supply market is distorted and inefficient because of the lack of information available to consumers about electricity prices. For an open and competitive energy market to operate efficiently and effectively requires information transparency to consumers. The Environmental Change Institute (ECI) at Oxford University is investigating this market breakdown.

As part of our ethos of providing businesses and communities with the ability to understand their energy use and to make informed choices, we are pleased to be working with the University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute on their crowd source commercial tariff research project. The project aims to make commercial electricity tariffs transparent to consumers so they can make informed decisions.

The problem that should be investigated is the one surrounding unmetered supplies.
This creates problems to modern proposals for energy saving ,particularly in highway feeder pillar fed street lighting.
Whilst Smart Meters could turn these into metered supplies which would allow infinite control and therefore energy savings the supply companies then hike the tariff by 50% hence making the energy saving propsal unattractive.
This is preventing large scale energy saving schemes from even getting off the starting line .......... it is positively absurd!!
