Looks like it's being supplied by Southern Electric and will be at their regular prices.

Yes, I read that. No doubt my M&S-loving auntie and uncle will switch to M&S fuel as they will think it's better than the stuff they are using at the moment.....'Well, you get what you pay for with M&S, don't you?'

I suppose customer service counts, but I imagine it will just be dealt with the current Southern Electric customer services.

Yes, I suppose M&S will now be seen as the Upmarket Ebico (TM)

I agree. The statement was in quotation marks as that's my auntie's mantra, certainly not mine

Sounds like SE better plan with the £15 voucher if you reduce energy consumption by 10%

Although if you go to SE direct its £15 cash and its electric comes from renewable resources.

M&S&SE are going to have to come up with something better to offer.
Missing Tesco R&R since Feb '07 & now a "Tesco veteran" apparently!
