Hi all

MSE's utilities team has put together several guides that answer many of the common questions about the changes to the energy price cap.

How much will I pay under October's price cap & what are the unit rates?


Topics covered include:

What is the energy price cap? How does it work and how much is it?


Topics covered include:

As well as these two guides, some other links you might find helpful are:

We also have a new Cost of Living Crisis Help page where you can find links to lots of our guides. 

If none of the links above answer your question, you can of course start a new thread here on the Energy board. To help other Forumites give you useful answers, please remember to include details of your annual energy consumption, and the unit rates/standing charge for any tariff or fix you're asking about. How much you currently pay on a Direct Debit may not be useful for comparing tariffs. (But please be careful not to include any information that could identify you or other people.)
