Energy UK's statement on pensioners rationing energy usage
Energy UK issued a statement on pensioners rationing energy usage.
Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK, said:
“This winter alone suppliers will have spent in excess of £200m supporting 1.4 million pensioners via the Warm Home Discount, a £140 rebate on their electricity bill.
“There is plenty of help available for pensioners, from discounts to grants available to help manage energy bills. It is important customers check they are on the cheapest tariff as it is possible to save hundreds of pounds by shopping around to find better deals by calling their supplier.
“If anyone is worried about affording their energy bills this winter, get in touch with their supplier or call the free, confidential Home Heat Helpline on 0800 33 66 99, where friendly advisors will be able to inform them of what help they are entitled to.”
