Roseman: Report calls for ban on energy sales at home
from Toronto Star
For many years, Ontario has allowed independent retailers to visit customers at their homes in order to sell them a long-term energy contract at a fixed price. These door knockers have no connection to your current energy supplier. They cannot guarantee you will pay less than the rate charged by your local utility. And they cannot promise an easy exit from the contract if you overpay and decide to cancel early. In 2011, the Ontario government brought in an extensive new law — The Energy Consumer Protection Act — and backed it up with a strong enforcement campaign.
