British Gas offering £1,500 electricity grant to help struggling customers

today26 June 2022

Thousands of customers with British Gas are being advised they could be eligible for a grant to help get them back on track with energy payments. The news has come as millions of people continue to struggle with the rising cost of living crisis.

Money expert Martin Lewis has even warned that energy bills could rise by another £1,000 this winter, as Brits continue to struggle against the cost of living crisis, The Mirror reports. Experts at Cornwall Insights predict the Ofgem energy price cap, which sets a limit on the rates a supplier can charge for each unit of gas and electricity you use, will rise to £2,980 in October, before hitting £3,000 in January.

While the government has confirmed every home in England, Scotland and Wales will get £400 off their energy bills – as part of a wider £15billion cost of living package – some households are still finding it difficult not to fall into debt.
