Prepayment justice – Callout for testimonials and support!

At the moment, we are trying to intervene to affect the level of the “cap” being proposed on prepayment meter tariffs.
It’s good that the CMA (Competition and Markets Authority) is proposing a cap at all, but completely unjust that they still want people on prepayment meters – who are usually the worst off customers, and often in debt – to pay hundreds of pounds more for their fuel than people who pay their bills by direct debit. We have written a response to the CMA which we will deliver to them at their offices in London at 10.30 this Friday. We would love for you to join us – just meet outside Unite in Holborn at 10.30am!
We will be including, anonymously, some of the testimonies from the Speak Out web page. We’ve also just launched an online petition demanding that the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy force parity for prepayment meter customers against those on direct debit. If you would like to help with any of this, please let us know.
The biggest help would be if you would like to speak out about your own situation – in your own name or anonymously, in the media around the 11th November action, or later through our own multi-media “speak out” platform that one of our members is creating. Email us at [email protected] with ‘Testimonial’ in the subject line if you can help.
Let’s fight the penalisation of poverty by prepayment meters!
In solidarity, FPA.
