Press Comment: Energy price rise will push millions into debt

Responding to today’s dramatic rise in the energy price cap, Heidi Chow, Executive Director at Debt Justice said:

“These price rises will push millions more households into energy debt and weigh them down for years to come.

The government needs to expand the windfall tax on energy producers to reduce the price cap and pay off the £2bn of energy debt that UK households have already taken on.

Cutting prices and writing off energy debt would give everyone a fighting chance of keeping the lights on this winter.”
