Stop the Energy Rip-Off: Poll Results
Over the last few days, tens of thousands of us have been voting on what to do next together to stop the energy rip-off. The initial results of the poll are in and together we’ve come up with a plan for how 38 Degrees members would like to keep working together to get a fairer deal on energy.
Volunteers in the 38 Degrees office have spent the last few days analysing every single response to the online poll using the techniques and tools normally used when 38 Degrees members are asked what they want to do next (there’s an in-depth look at how this works here, here and here).
Below is a look at how 38 Degrees members answered the question “what is the best way to stop the energy ripoff?”
The results of the vote gave two priorities:
- Make energy tariffs clearer
- Energy companies should be more upfront about what deal is cheapest for you
It is not surprising that we all want clearer energy pricing, even accountants and A-Level maths students can’t understand gas and electricity bills!
These results will help determine what we focus on in coming months but as always they are just the start. They give the staff team a direction for researching campaign opportunities and developing ideas for action. We won’t be able to do everything immediately. Sometimes we have to wait for the moment when we can effectively create change by moving together. And as the campaign develops the team takes in a constant stream of ideas and feedback from members using email, Twitter, Facebook and the campaigns suggestions site.
What do you think?
What do you think of these results? Are there any priorities that you think should be on the list?
