Just got this email from Lewisham (not sure of the Distribution List, so I thought it might be useful to share). It’s especially relevant if you don’t have a Smart Meter.
Lewisham council are advising residents to take meter readings on 31 March 2022, before the gas and electricity prices go up.
The energy price cap will increase from 1 April, with most gas customers being affected. This means that if you are on a default tariff, paying by direct debit, you are likely to see an increase of around £693 over the year in your energy bills. The increase is caused by a record rise in world gas prices over the last 6 months.
