Energy

Support and resources to help with rising energy costs.

Energy prices have been rising dramatically this year and causing real worry to many ahead of this coming winter. 

Ofgem predict a price cap of  £3,420 for the average duel-fuel tarrif by the end of 2022, three-times what households were paying at the start of the year. The Resolution Foundation have said almost 10 million households could find themselves in “fuel stress” this winter. Fuel stress is defined as spending at least a 10th of a household's total budget on energy bills alone.

GOVERNMENT SUPPORT 

Millions of the most vulnerable households will get £1,200 of one-off support in total this year to help with the cost of living and their energy bills, with all domestic electricity customers receiving at least £400.

Changes to price cap updates

Ofgem announced on 4 Aug 2022 that the energy price cap will be updated quarterly, rather than every six months. The change will go some way to provide the stability needed in the energy market, reducing the risk of further large-scale supplier failures which cause huge disruption and push up costs for consumers.
