SSE statement on draft Bill to put a price cap on energy bills

“SSE will look carefully at what is proposed by government and detailed consultation is required to help avoid any unintended consequences. SSE believes in competition not caps, so if there is to be any intervention it should be simple to administer, time-limited, and maintain the principles of a competitive energy market to best serve customers’ interests.”
