Ofgem slaps energy supplier SSE with record £10.5m fine
Energy supplier SSE has been fined a record £10.5m by the regulator Ofgem for misselling electricity and gas to customers, a news report reveals.
Ofgem officials explained that SSE received such a serious fine because it had breached its obligations “relating to telephone, in-store and doorstep sales activities”. The amount “reflects the seriousness and duration of breaches, the likely substantial harm that they have caused and the likely gain to SSE”.
According to their report, Ofgem found that a failure of SSE’s management arrangements meant that insufficient attention was paid to ensuring compliance with obligations, which enabled misleading and unsubstantiated statements to be made by sales agents to potential customers about savings.
If you’re not really happy with the the energy suppliers’ behaviour towards customers (not to mention the ever-increasing energy bills) and you’re seriously want to do something about it, then look no further than HeatingSave.
The HeatingSave Energy Management System will enable customers to easily save between 20 and 30+ percent on their heating bills by optimizing the energy consumption levels within any building.
In order to achieve this, HeatingSave employs a complex heat-loss algorithm, that creates a specific profile for any building and based on that, switches on your heating on later if its warm and also switch off earlier if its cold. It also automatically adjusts your boiler depending on how warm it is outside – save up to another 10%.
Additionally, the automatic occupancy detection allows the temperature to reduce to a background when areas are not used and quickly brought up to temperature when they are being used.
If you’re want to find out more about the HeatingSave system, just get in touch with our dedicated team, they’ll be more than happy to answer all of your questions. Plus, you could also get a Free Energy Survey, that will assess your building’s specific needs and offer you some very important information regarding the measures you might need to implement in order to achieve some visible results in terms of energy saving.
