ABSTRACT
The article reports that business energy suppliers have welcomed proposals from British regulator Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) to stop suppliers using the so-called objection window to offer lower prices to customers who are planning to switch to a cheaper rival. According to the article, Ofgem wants to modify supply licenses so that suppliers can only object to the transfer on the grounds of contract provisions that applied at the time they received the loss notification.
