Ofgem Announces Energy Price Cap Update to Start in April

Energy regulator, Ofgem, announced yesterday (27th February 2023) it’s energy price cap for the upcoming quarter.

From 1st April – 30th June a typical duel fuel household will see a reduction of almost £1,000 per year in energy costs, lowering from its current average price of £4,279 to an annual level of £3,280. The reduction of fees is a direct reflection of the falls in wholesale energy prices

Alongside the governments Energy Price Guarantee (EPG), which from April is set at £3,000, customers will pay no more than £3,000 for a typical bill.

Customers are being advised that no action is needed and that the cap will be applied to their bills automatically.
