The price cap was applied to domestic default tariffs to address a specific issue identified by the CMA in how suppliers priced these tariffs. No such issue was identified for commercial contracts, such as those procured by landlords to serve tenants. Consumers supplied via landlords are protected under Ofgem’s Maximum Resale Price Provisions.

On 5 April, Government published a summary of responses to the domestic customers on non-domestic tariffs CfE, summarising the issues identified and the actions being taken to address the issues. Government will consider whether any further actions are required once the current measures being undertaken have embedded.
