The 1st January 2019 will be the introduction of the Energy Price Cap. People in the energy market have been ripped off on default tariffs for too long. A cap on these tariffs will go some way to protect people from the price of energy bills.
While the price cap should save people money on standard variable tariffs, people should still be able to find a better deal on their energy bills by shopping around.
The Citizens Advice comparison tool and supplier star rating can help with this.
Households may also be able to reduce their bills and make long-term savings by improving the energy efficiency of their homes. Simple steps, such as better insulation or heating controls, are a good place to start.
