Energy Crisis Help
Our tips to counter the cost of soaring gas and electricity bills
This section has all our guides and tools to help you with the soaring cost of energy. We've full details of the Government's Energy Price Guarantee, which will keep costs capped until April. Plus we've help for what you need to think about if you've fixed energy.
We've also got guides which pull together all of the help available, whether that's Government grants for specific groups, help from the energy companies or free advice agencies that can help.
We've also tips to help you cut how much energy you use. And if that doesn't go far enough to cut your bills, our Heat the Human, not the Home guide tells you how to stay warm without putting the heating on - a guide we never thought we'd have to write.
You'll also find the various energy and housing grants that are available, an energy switching guide for those living in Northern Ireland, plus information on smart meters and whether you should get one – including what happens if it goes 'dumb'.
And if you're wanting to go green, our Are Solar Panels worth it? and Electric Vehicles tariff guides could help you change up your home to use less - though the initial outlay for both is very high.
