The 100% renewable electricity and green gas supplier which has been trading for 17 years, has also added its voice to growing concerns about unsustainable tariffs offered by some rivals.
Juliet Davenport, founder and Chief Executive of Good Energy said, “Some tariffs look unsustainably priced given current wholesale price levels. Competitive deals are great for customers, but loss leading tariffs coupled with a period of price volatility is an accident waiting to happen, especially for companies without proper risk management and trading functions. Blaming Brexit for price hikes is disingenuous – wholesale prices have been rising independently since mid April.”
