Are there too many gas & electricity choices?

One flat rate per company–  A simple averaged charge 1,564 votes (46 %)

                   3,428 votes received.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
