Energy Price Guarantee

Funding to administer the UK Government’s Energy Price Guarantee (EPG) for the duration of the scheme.

We’re continuing to administer the UK Government’s Energy Price Guarantee (EPG)

In September 2022, the UK Government announced the domestic Energy Price Guarantee.

Through this scheme, the unit cost of gas is reduced for domestic consumers since October last year.

We administer the scheme and make weekly payments to registered Gas Suppliers for the gas consumed in the previous week.


What this involves

This budget will fund the EPG activities for both the duration of the scheme and the ensuing reconciliation period.

These activities include the extraction of data, and the calculation and validation of initial and reconciled payments at Supplier level.


Customer benefits

  • Suppliers are able to reduce the unit price they charge to domestic consumers.

  • Lower bills for domestic consumers, alleviating financial pressure on households.

  • Prevents further households from falling into poverty.

  • Provision of investment means no impact on other service delivery.
