All domestic electricity customers in Great Britain will receive a £200 reduction in their electricity costs from this October. This will be delivered via energy suppliers and will be clearly identifiable as a line item on electricity bills.

The reduction in costs will help people with the increase in energy bills by spreading the increased costs over a few years, so they are more manageable for households.
