Energy Price Guarantee
The Energy Price Guarantee (EPG) automatically limits the amount you can be charged per unit of gas or electricity. The EPG will remain in place until the end of June 2023. This will continue to limit the average household bill to £2500 a year.
There is no need to apply or contact your energy supplier.
You will still pay more if you use more energy.
You can find out more about the Energy Price Guarantee and the latest rates used on GOV.UK.
