Parent Electric Company to Amigo Energy Praises Competition Bureau's Response

Electric company Amigo Energy's parent company Just Energy Group, Inc praises the efforts of Canada’s Competition Bureau in response to unfair competition practices between energy company Direct Energy and competition company Reliance.
Jan. 2, 2013 - PRLog -- Just Energy is the parent company to electric company Amigo Energy, National Home Services, and other companies as well. National Home Services is a retailer of energy efficient water heaters. This month Just Energy has gladly accepted the application placed by the Competition Tribunal in Canada against Direct Energy and Reliance, two companies reportedly engaging in anti-competitive practices. These practices have resulted in the reduction of consumer choice in choosing a water heater among the Ontario residential marketplace.

A careful investigation by the Competition Bureau has revealed that both Direct Energy and Reliance have indeed engaged in anti-completive practices. Therefore, the Competition Tribunal is seeking $25 million to be paid by Direct Energy Marketing Limited and Reliance Comfort Limited Partnership. The money will go toward penalties and other damages caused because of the loss of fair competition.

“I believe fundamentally in competition and feel that the practices of Direct Energy and Reliance have significantly limited the ability of National and other competitors to expand in the market for water heater rental in Ontario by establishing artificial barriers to customer switching. These actions reflect poorly on the entire industry and, understandably, cause concerns for consumers. We believe that consumers deserve better and thank the Competition Bureau for its continuing efforts to promote competition in this industry,” says the electric company CEO, Ken Hartwick.
