Energy prices are rising – what can we do?



Warm and cozy living room

Ofgem have announced their pricing cap will be removed soon, which means energy bills in homes will be rising. The increase of £153 for prepayment customers and £139 from those paying by direct debit is likely to result in suppliers putting their prices up in October.

What does this mean?

This means energy bills in homes across the UK are likely to go up. This price rise takes place in October, just at the start of winter when we use more energy to keep our homes warm. But customers can shop around for new tariffs or more supplier to get a better deal and save money.
