Energy Debt

Scores of households have debts and arrears owed to energy companies. Discover everything you need to know about gas and electric debts in the UK here. 

Unlike many of our other household bills, energy prices and household energy usage can fluctuate over the course of a year, which makes the exact costs of these bills harder to predict. This is just one of many reasons why we might fall behind on our energy payments and end up in arrears.  

Dealing with energy debt can be stressful, especially if the debt is passed to a debt collection agency and you start receiving legal threats. But there are usually ways to pay off your energy debts without causing further financial strain.

Dealing with an energy debt has been made clearer and easier with our selection of energy debt guides, complete with real quotes, stories and tips. From understanding your rights to learning how to deal with debt collectors and legal threats, everything you need can be found right here.
