Here you can view the price cap level we have set for suppliers to apply. Your energy bill isn’t capped – this will vary depending on how much energy you use. The cap applies to the price your supplier charges for each unit (kWh) of electricity and gas used, and your standing charge.
It's best to contact your supplier for your specific tariff price details. You can find their contact details on a recent bill, or see find my supplier.
If suppliers raise their prices, they must write to inform you before a new price applies, and ensure you have enough time to consider your options and switch away if you want to.
Current price cap level
We announce the updated cap level twice a year in February and August, to reflect the price cap level that will come into effect in April and October. You can subscribe to our Alerts & Briefings e-newsletter to be notified each time we update the price cap.
