Energy Bills to Tumble

Energy bills are expected to tumble this July, as tariffs are set to fall, signalling a much needed and welcome respite to recent months.

At present, a typical user pays no more than £2,500 a year for their energy because of the Government’s Energy Price Guarantee. Analysts predict the new price cap will be set at £2,054 for July.

And the trend is set to continue, with a further expected fall in October, ahead of Winter to a new cap of £1,976. However more will need to be done with many families still forecasted in the UK still to be in fuel poverty.
