“The league table shows the huge gulf in service on offer from energy suppliers and that standards in some cases are falling well short of what customers should expect. We work hard to look after our customers and, having outperformed all 40 other suppliers, we’ve shown that – if you want more than just a cheap price – smaller doesn’t always mean better when it comes to choosing your energy supplier.”
