Can't afford your energy bill? Here's how PSP can help.
Numerous small businesses in the UK have struggled for months on end to pay their utility bills due to the constant rise in the energy market.
In this blog, we'll briefly discuss what happens if you fail to make your payments on time, and how we can help mitigate these issues.
Will energy prices continue to increase?
Yes. Both electricity and gas prices will surge in October this year. It has been confirmed that the energy price cap will increase by 80%, bringing average annual bills to £3,549 in October when the new energy price cap goes into effect.
Ofgem CEO, Jonathan Brearley stated:
“The trade-offs we need to make on behalf of consumers are extremely difficult and there are simply no easy answers right now. Today’s changes ensure the price cap does its job, making sure customers are only paying the real cost of their energy, but also, that it can adapt to the current volatile market."
What happens if I fail to pay my energy bills?
In extremely rare circumstances, if a payment is unpaid after 28 days, you might be threatened with having your supply cut off, although you are typically offered a metre as an alternative.
Your provider must also first give you the opportunity to settle your debt with a plan.
