Household energy bills are projected to rise by £500


Energy Prices Continue To Rise - Use Morrison Solar Or Wind Turbine to Combat These Price Hikes

Morrison Sustainable Energy can help homeowners identify the best renewable energy options for their needs

The Ofgem energy price cap, its function, and its impact on consumer bills are currently being debated. While wholesale prices are falling, household energy bills are projected to rise by £500. Ofgem recently announced a reduction of approximately £1,000 on the cap for the amount that energy suppliers can charge, but the average consumer bill may still increase by £500.

The government’s energy price guarantee only partly protects customers from paying the full price cap, resulting in a 20% increase in what they pay. Ofgem, an independent regulator of the UK’s energy market, sets a price cap on what energy firms can charge customers on default or standard and variable tariffs.

The cap was established in January 2019 and applies to those on a default energy tariff, including those who pay via direct debit, standard credit, or prepayment meter. The cap limits the amount paid by domestic customers to £2,500 a year for a typical household, but the total cost depends on the usage.

The government covers the difference between the price cap and the Energy Price Guarantee (EPG), but this support will be reduced from April. Ofgem’s price cap is forecast to fall to approximately £3,295 for a typical household from April, but customers will likely pay 20% more due to the reduced EPG.

The energy price cap is determined by various costs, including network, operating, and policy costs, as well as VAT and earnings, and includes a maximum daily standing charge.

Morrison Sustainable Energy is a company that offers various ways to reduce energy bills through the use of renewable energy sources such as solar panels and wind turbines.

By generating electricity from these sources, homeowners can reduce their dependence on traditional energy sources, which can be expensive and often have a negative impact on the environment. Solar panels, for example, can be installed on a home’s roof or in the yard to capture energy from the sun, which can then be converted into electricity. Similarly, wind turbines can be installed in areas with steady winds to generate electricity.

By using these renewable energy sources, homeowners can reduce their energy bills and even generate excess energy that can be sold back to the grid. In addition, the use of renewable energy sources helps to reduce carbon emissions, contributing to a more sustainable future for the planet.

Morrison Sustainable Energy can help homeowners identify the best renewable energy options for their needs and install and maintain the equipment to ensure optimal performance and energy savings.
