In April we published the response to the call for evidence on domestic customers with non-domestic contracts, aiming to understand the advantages and disadvantages of these arrangements. The responses revealed the complexity of energy supply and contract arrangements, including there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Due to the physical set-up of multiple-dwelling developments, most consumers will remain on non-domestic contracts and will not have individual meters. The Department and Ofgem are addressing some concerns, including raising awareness of the Maximum Resale Price Protection to increase compliance. We will continue engaging stakeholders to determine if further action is necessary.
