Smart Meters

Today I spoke in favour of a bill to cap Energy prices. We currently have an unfair and broken system which punishes people who are loyal customers.

People in the Chippenham constituency are overpaying for energy by nearly 8 million which is nearly £300 a year for over 27,000 families!

The cap will be temporary whilst we encourage switching, work to inform consumers of their energy use and bring energy prices down via a number of initiatives including the roll out of smart meters.
