Water And Electricity Do Mix, Say Severn Trent

Water firm Severn Trent has taken the plunge into the power market by expanding its services to include gas and electricity supplies.

Customers are being promised a cheaper deal from today. They are being offered gas immediately, and electricity from December.

Managing director Brian Duckworth said:

"We already supply eight million people with vital water and waste water services at some of the lowest prices in the country.

“Now we can extend that value and our reputation for quality and reliability to gas and soon electricity.”

Multinational energy supplier Amerada, which already supplies 400,000 homes in the UK with energy, will partner Severn Trent Water to supply the gas and electricity.

Mr Duckworth added:

"This is a logical extension of the services we already provide, bringing the full extent of 'essentials' to homes and businesses at first across the Midlands, but in due course nationally too.

"This means that customers can relax in the knowledge that they are getting a great deal on prices, matched with Severn Trent Water's reputation for reliability.”

"Of course while we're adding gas and electricity to the core value for money services our customers can get from Severn Trent, we'll still be working hard to make sure they continue to get plentiful safe supplies of water, and top quality protection for the environment from their waste water.

"This shows that while others are talking about competition in the water industry, we at Severn Trent are getting on and making it happen.

“We signed the first ever national water services deal with Northern Foods last summer, developing the pure water side of the business.”
