ABSTRACT
The article reports that the decision of the British Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) to take regulatory action on unfair pricing and introduce a non-discrimination clause follows the 2008 price probe which highlighted customers who had few benefits from the ability to switch supplier. It notes that the new measure will prevent suppliers to offer different prices in different areas unless the variations can be proved by cost differences. According to Ofgem's critics, this will result in a price level higher than the existing one.
