E.on: ‘1,2,3,4, cut your prices for us all!’
**UPDATE – After handing our huge people-powered petition this morning, E.ON called the office this afternoon to tell us they have just dropped their electricity prices by 6%! It’s a start, but we need to keep the pressure building for bigger cuts that reflect the global price drop.**
Within the last week British Gas, EDF, npower and Scottish & Southern have cut their gas or electricity prices by around 5% . E.on and Scottish Power are the last remaining big gas and electricity company yet to cut its prices. So this morning, some 38 Degrees staff and volunteers went to e.on’s headquarters at 100 Pall Mall in central London to step up the pressure.
We turned up outside e.on headquarters to greet their staff coming in to work with our 93,500 strong petition, placards, banner, and chants.
Some very uncomfortable e.on employees quickly shuffled passed us with heads down on their way into the building. There were press photographers waiting to capture the event and passing traffic kept beeping in support of our message!
