Energy bills: ‘It’s really extraordinarily grim’

In a statement, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy told Money Box: “We recognise that leaseholders and heat network customers are currently only protected by the energy price cap for the gas and electricity they buy directly from an energy supplier, which is why we are giving Ofgem new powers to regulate prices in this sector in the future. “The vast majority of leaseholders will receive £200 off their energy bills from October as part of the £9.1bn Energy Bills Rebate and a further £150 Council Tax rebate.”
