Domestic electricity customers will receive the reduction regardless of their type of payment method.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) will work closely with industry and consumer groups to ensure pre-payment customers receive the £200 reduction from October in a way that is convenient for them. BEIS will consult in the spring.
