UK #Energy Supplier #SSE to offer annual reviews for customers

Following Nick Clegg’s push for UK energy companies to offer the British public the best tariffs, utilities giant SSE has announced that it is to offer all its customers an ‘Annual Energy Review’ (AER), the company revealed today.

SSE said this afternoon that, after a successful pilot programme involving over 1,000 customers, it will now offer an AER to “make sure that customers are on the best product for their needs, paying for their energy in the most effective way, using their energy efficiently and accessing any benefits or support they might be entitled to.”

Earlier this month, the Deputy Prime Minister claimed that families were paying too much for their bills as they are on the wrong tariff.

SSE said it will start off by prioritising AERs for “vulnerable” customers before rolling-out the scheme nationwide throughout the year. SSE has reassured that it will freeze prices until at least October 2012, in spite of wholesale price pressures.
