The freeze on our Energy bills is most welcome but it can be confusing as people may think that the new £2.500 price cap is all they will pay but that is not necessarily the case.  It is  important to remember that this is a cap on the unit rate of the energy you use – it is not a cap on your final bill. The less energy you use, the less you will pay – so you can still save money on your energy this winter.

The £2,500 quoted is an indication of what an average household will use if they pay by Direct Debit.  There are regional variations also so USwitch have published a helpful table with the rates per KwH under the new Price Guarantee and the regional variations.  Click  bit.ly/3RJTLz7 and scroll down to view the new figures.

There are many internet sites which can give us information on energy savings but I found USwitch’s 102 Energy Savings Tips For Your Home useful as it gives a list of tips for every room in the house and you can check which of these you have done and some you may need to implement.  Access it @ www.uswitch.com/energy-efficiency/free-energy-saving-tips/
