The Federation of Small Businesses is calling on the Government to give small firms the same level of protection in the energy market as domestic consumers.

The call follows regulator Ofgem’s announcement that it is increasing levels of protection in the domestic energy market.

FSB regional chairman and Sheffield businessman Gordon Millward said: “Many small businesses use energy at similar levels to domestic consumers. They suffer with difficulty in switching suppliers and unfair contract terms are far more pronounced in the small business energy market.”
