This article explains the law on deemed electricity supply contracts in Great Britain. It gives the relevant paragraph in the Utilities Act 2000 which governs electricity supply contracts. It also discusses the clarification made by the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) that deemed contracts apply only once gas or electricity is consumed. The article criticizes the wording of the act that failed to clear deemed contracts.
