Power cut proposal for consumers owing two successive bills

Energy firms would be entitled to order electricity supply disconnections for customers who have failed to pay two successive electricity bills, regardless of the amount, according to a new proposal made by RAE, the Regulatory Authority for Energy, in a third round of public consultation concerning a new framework for power disconnection and consumer supplier switching rights.

RAE has also recommended giving suppliers the right to disconnect electricity supply for consumers switching suppliers and leaving behind two successive unpaid electricity bills, even if new contracts with a new supplier have already been signed.
