The Government is providing a £200 reduction on bills from October for all households in Great Britain with a domestic electricity meter, to reduce pressure on energy bills this year when global gas prices are high.

There will be cases where changes in people’s personal circumstances at the time mean they may not directly be the recipient of the reduction, but still see increases in future bills. The Government will look at these issues further through a public consultation run by the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) in the spring, but to spread the cost of the reduction as widely as possible, all domestic energy consumers are expected to contribute to future repayments.
