- Re energy prices with the universal £400 grant to bills from October.
- The price cap is currently £1971 after a 54% rise on 1 April.
- That was said to be increasing to around £2800 from 1 October (according to the Ofgem CEO) - which would have been an additional 40-45% rise.
- For simplicity , lets take off £400 from £2800 - that would still be a 20%+ increase in energy bills from 1 October - at a time when energy consumption will begin to increase as people start to turn their heating on.
