How can I ring British Gas in Shepton Mallet?

It's always hard to give real meaning to these estimated yearly budget since only a few of us have a consolidated idea of the money we actually put in our energy bills. It's therefore really interesting to challenge these prices to on of the driving indicators of the industry: the Energy Price Cap. The price cap limits the rates a supplier can charge for their default tariffs. These include the standing charge and price for each kWh of electricity and gas (the units your bill is calculated from). Ofgem sets the cap level for summer and winter based on the underlying costs to supply energy. This keeps prices fair and makes sure suppliers reflect any drops in costs in your rates.

Though this figure is established on a national level it is far from being unique. Indeed in its will to stay as close as possible to the fair price, Ofgem take local cost into consideration providing a specific EPC for each region of the country. Same goes from the different type of calculation and pricing tariffs that all have a different indicator.

Please find bellow the latest value of the Price Cap for your South West England as it stands from the 1st of October 2021 to the 31st of March 2022 (based on the TDCV consumption estimations: 12,000 kWh for Gas, 2,900 kWh for Electricity).

Fuel Type Standard Credit Price Cap Prepayment Price Cap Other Payment Methods Price Cap
Electricity £ 727.2545161 £ 684.8677419 £ 680.2277419
Gas £ 612.28 £ 594.93 £ 570.47

In this second table you will find the Energy Price Cap for E7 tariffs. These values have been separated because these are based on a different TDCV: 4,200 kWh (vs 2,900 kWh). Indeed E7 customers tend to consume more than their one-rate tariff counterpart.

Fuel Type Standard Credit Price Cap Prepayment Price Cap Other Payment Methods Price Cap
Electricity £ 955.59 £ 900.8 £ 896.6
