Energy Bills Advice From Calderdale Council

This article is part of Calderdale’s Winter 2023-24 Cost of Living Factsheet, a really useful guide published by Calderdale Council.

Energy bills for gas and electricity will drop slightly this winter but will remain high. Fuel vouchers are available for the most vulnerable households (contact Customer First for further information). Households without a pre-payment meter no longer receive an Energy Price Guarantee discount on their gas and electricity bills.

This is because the Ofgem price cap is lower than the Energy Price Guarantee level. From July to September 23, the cap will be set at £2,074 for a typical household per year. From October to December, it will reduce slightly to £1,923. The price cap changes every 3 months so check Ofgem’s website for the latest information.

From 1st July the prepayment meter premium was removed meaning that pre-payment customers now pay the same as direct payment customers. If you need help to heat your home, the Healthy Homes Service and Greener Together Energy Service can help. Click here for contact details.

Warm Spaces will be available this winter – you can find your nearest warm space here. Take a look at our energy bills section for tips to keep safe and warm as well as help and support available.
