The business of supplying the UK with electricity is without a doubt stronger now than it has ever been, and is an interesting example of a common bell-curve found so often within the spectrum of business. Like most commodity-based businesses, things start with somewhat of a boom, die down, and then finally raise back to a boom similar to the first. The electricity industry is no different, and there are currently more efficient and effectic suppliers of electricity in the UK than there have ever been. Perhaps it would make sense to delve more deeply into this subject to figure out why that is.
With the advent of electricity came an exciting new invention, thought by many to be a fad that would never turn into anything, yet recognized by most as the important new aspect of technology that it surely was. It didn't take very long for thousands of folks to jump on the bandwagon of electricity and begin figuring out ways to carve their own niche in the industry. This is the birth of electricity suppliers, and there were certainly more than one could count on his own ten fingers.
Soon after, however, it was discovered that too many electricity suppliers resulted in the downfall of the industry, as people just weren't making enough money because the competition was too high. This, of course, was a major issue and resulted in hundreds of electricity suppliers shutting down. Those who were left standing were considered to be the strongest of the bunch, and many of them lived on to this very day.
Today, electricity suppliers are much more streamlined than they were in the past. Sure, things have changed in the industry and companies have had to adapt, but it's safe to say that over the past hundred or so years, people have "figured out" the industry and the issues that may have existed in the past no longer do. People are much more confident now in who they go with for an electricity supplier because it is assumed that "they are all good." While this of course is not necessarily true, there is indeed something to this statement, as it keeps people content in their buying of electricity.
