UK Consumers Fight back over Energy Price Rises Tuesday 12 July 2011 PDF Print We aim to give the consumer a platform to negotiate energy prices Hot on the heels of the news that Ofgem, the energy watchdog, is to investigate the “Big Six” energy companies over possible “cartel behaviour” in their pricing strategies, and the uproar that followed the announcement that British Gas is to increase prices further, is news of a new web service empowering consumers to show that they can retaliate against the pricing strategies of the energy corporations. Giantclient.co.uk is a new “Social Utility” using social networking to enable consumers to join together creating a “Giant Client” that will use their collective strength to drive down energy prices. Said Mark Lawfull co founder of giantclient.co.uk “It's clear to us that energy consumers have been paying not only for the huge profits and dividends earned and paid by the energy corporations, but also for the spin off industries, the comparison and switching companies” he continues “Energy provision is and should be a service provided to the public, not a private profit making industry. We aim to give the consumer a platform to negotiate energy prices on a level that will make these companies take notice of their voice.” The Giant Client social utility is aiming to gain 10,000 members to “Grow the Giant” and will then use their business contacts to negotiate “the best energy prices available in the uk”. “10,000 is just the start, just the proving ground” says Mark “There is no reason why every household in the UK can't become a Giant Client member and effectively renationalise the energy industry. Anyone unsure about the concept should take a look at the financial statements on the websites of any of these giant corporations, the money made out of energy is incredible, wholesale prices may have gone up, but you can see that British Gas increased their dividend payment by 12 % last year.” Giant Client officially releases their new website (www.giantclient.co.uk) on Monday July 11th ENDS Contact details: Mark.firstname.lastname@example.org +44 7966 795897 This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of Giant Client in the following categories: Men's Interest, Home & Garden, Women's Interest & Beauty, Personal Finance, Business & Finance, Public Sector, Third Sector & Legal, Manufacturing, Engineering & Energy, for more information visit https://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
