"We welcome Ofgem's announcement that it is going to clean up the energy market.

"Being impartial and independent means that we can ensure our customers are aware of the most competitive tariffs on the market without fear or favour, and it's clear they welcome finding a pressure free ‘no sales' approach to energy provision.”
