UK Warning energy bills could hit an eye-watering £4,400 by January last minute news
PremierLeague-News.Com- Cap on energy bills might soar by several hundred pounds more than nightmare forecasts predicted earlier this week
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A new analysis has shown that the cap on energy bills might soar by several hundred pounds higher than originally predicted. A provisional forecast by experts at energy consultancy Auxilione has shown that the price cap on energy bills could reach £3,687 in October – close to double today’s already record levels. The news means that more misery will be piled on the 24 million households whose bills are governed by the price cap with experts seeing further rises in 2023. The cap could hit around £4,400 in January, they warned, although the predictions came with caveats.

The company said: “We release today’s view with a caveat that we are having to re-do our analysis this week to ‘double check’ that the outputs are correct. Be sure to be sitting down before reading on,”. The price could balloon further to £4,700 in April, the experts said, although they warned that forecasts so far ahead are more likely to be unreliable. If true, it would mean a price cap more than four times higher than before the gas price crisis started last year.

. Auxilione said the changes – which added around £400 to the January price cap compared to Friday’s forecast – were largely due to new Ofgem rules that were announced earlier this week. “On Thursday Ofgem released their final models including some changes to allowances within the cap, such as recovering some of these over a shorter period of time,” it said. “Having now analysed these has left us wondering if these are showing the correct outputs. Over the last 24 hours we have been comparing our values with other analysts who also seem to be in the same position as us – in disbelief at the values.” It will mean serious hardship for many households struggling to keep their homes warm. Experts recommend many techniques to cut back gas use. One of the simplest is to reduce the flow temperature on a boiler, which could save around £200 on an average energy bill.
