Energy UK statement on costs and levies
In response to the government's costs and levies announcement Energy UK said:
"It is welcome news that some costs will be moved into general government spending which will spread the cost of more evenly so less well off households, and those whose homes need energy efficiency measures, will still get the help they need. But, as ever, the devil is in the detail and we look forward to seeing more in the Autumn Statement. In the meantime, energy companies continue to help poorer customers meet the cost of their bills and to work to make homes warmer.
"No one should be afraid of putting the heating on when it gets colder. If you are worried, or are concerned about someone else, contact your energy supplier or call the free, impartial Home Heat Helpline in 0800 33 66 99."
