Electricite de France SA:Britain's competition watchdog wants to impose an energy price cap for 4 mln households on pre-payment meters, a document seen by Reuters showed, a watering down of previous proposals - RTRS.The Competition Markets Authority (CMA) proposals on Thursday are the provisional outcome of an investigation into whether the country's largest energy suppliers, also known as the "Big Six", have distorted competition in the energy market.The inquiry, which was launched in June 2014, is intended to clear up once and for all whether SSE, Iberdrola's Scottish Power, Centrica, RWE npower, E.ON and EDF Energy were abusing their control of the market.The price control for pre-payment meter customers would reduce their bills by a total of 300 million pounds a year and will remain in place until 2020, the CMA said.Last year, the CMA had proposed a price cap for all customers on the most expensive tariffs.On Thursday, the CMA said that in total, customers may have been paying around 1.7 billion pounds a year more than they would have done in a competitive market.The watchdog also proposed that a database is created, to be controlled by the energy regulator, to allow rival suppliers to contact customers who have been on more expensive tariffs for three years or more with better deals.  Full Article
