Alex Neill, Which? Managing Director of Home Products and Services, said:
“Scrapping standard tariffs is a big move if it means millions of British Gas’ existing customers are now going to engage in the energy market. Changes that are aimed at delivering more customer engagement are welcome, although we need to see whether this does lead to people getting a better deal.
“Any customers on poor value standard tariffs should shop around now as there are cheaper deals to be found on the market.”
