Reasons Not to Switch to Community

On the basis of the benefits provided by traditional retailers, Community does not offer the stated unconscious benefits and consequently their omission creates important reasons why you shouldn’t switch to supply by Community if they are important to you:

  1. There is no guaranteed price cap on energy (other than that contained within the Market Rules); during power and gas crises, energy prices will be very high and can be avoided only by not consuming at those times.

  2. The customer has to pay in advance of consumption (in effect, a security deposit).

  3. The customers has to pay on time every time.

  4. The customer has to pay by Direct Debit (so that any payment default is very clearly defined).

  5. The customer will be disconnected if its prepaid credit runs out.
