A number of customers have been contacting Direct Power with concerns following the recent Conservative Party’s Price Cap Proposal. In brief, the proposal is aimed at complacent domestic customers, i.e. those who do nothing and remain on Suppliers’ expensive Standard Tariffs. These are sometimes referred to as Deemed Rates or Variable Rates.
