The Government Energy Price Guarantee will be in place for two years from 1st October and will cap the price for each unit of energy you use. Please note, it’s not a cap on your total bill value and new prices start from 1 October. For more information about the Energy Price Guarantee visit https://www.gov.uk/ .
We recommend you take up to date meter readings by 30 September to ensure your energy company’s bill accurately reflects the amount of energy you’ve used before the new prices take effect.
If you have a smart meter, your meter should automatically send your energy company the readings (it’s wise to take photo of the readings or a note for your reference).
If you don’t have a smart meter or you know your smart meter isn’t communicating, we recommend you take readings on 30th September and submit. Majority of energy companies are providing a couple of days to submit readings (and then back date to 30th September) but please check with your own company.
