You can change your mind. Until March 2015, households that switch to a new flexible pricing plan with their current retailer can switch back to their previous rate structure at any time without incurring an administration fee. Customers will always have a choice of rates, including a flat rate.
However, it is important to note, that depending on the contract you have accepted with your energy retailer, some additional fees or charges may still be payable when switching back to your old plan. These costs may be associated with special offers made by retailers as part of the flexible pricing offer, such as event tickets or subscriptions. You should discuss any potential fees or charges associated with moving back to your previous plan with your retailer before accepting a new flexible pricing plan.
It’s also important to know that the ability to change your mind and move back to your old plan only applies to new flexible pricing offers.
