Water Watchdog Plans Shakeup to Bring More Competition

Ofwat has published plans to increase competition of water resources in England and Wales. 

The water industry regulator wants to allow more ‘big’ customers – those who use over 50million litres a year – to switch suppliers. Currently 2,200 big water users can switch but Ofwat wants to increase this number to 27,000 and then eventually to include all of the 1.2million non-household users. 

Ofwat believes that consumers will benefit from greater competition as competition in other utilities has improved services and decreased prices.
