How is the energy cap going to work
The energy cap of £2,500 is on average household consumption, not everyone’s, and it relates to unit rates, not the actual amount of energy you can be charged for.
Everyone’s will vary, worth asking your energy provider for your annual consumption.
According to Ofgem, the average British household has 2.4 people living in it and uses 2,900 kWh of electricity and 12,000 kWh of gas. This works out at 242 kWh of electricity and 1,000 kWh of gas per month.
You use more, you pay more, use less, you pay less.
Most will also get £400 off over the next 6 months reducing the cap to £2,100 average.
Ok thank you
