Did you say help to pay your energy bills? Well sure!
By the way, we hope you are doing well and staying safe. We are doing our best to stay safe too.
It’s been a bit of a scary time, hasn’t it? Have a look at how we have been coping.
One of our biggest worries is how to manage the household expenses especially when there is much less money coming in.
Of course, the government has made promises to almost every worker whose finances have been left in shambles. I know it will take some months but at least it is something.
Do check your mortgage provider too as we have, like so many others, been able to secure a mortgage payment holiday for three months. Yes! Three whole months without having to worry about a mortgage payment.
The FCA also offers temporary relief to those affected by the Coronavirus too.
Some other brands have got in on the act and have started to think of ways to help those that they serve.
Energy supplier offers to help pay your energy bills
Here’s an energy supplier from whom you can get help too. Have you heard of Utility Point?
A Dorset-based energy supplier Utility Point has today launched a tariff designed to support people during the coronavirus outbreak.
Named the UP Support tariff, Utility Point will credit customers with half the cost of their bills for the first three months.
Let’s hear it straight from the horse’s mouth
Ben Bolt, Utility Point CEO and co-founder says “In light of the current situation, we thought it essential to help the wider community during this period of uncertainty. This ensures we give something back to people who find themselves currently worrying about their finances.”
But what if you are not a current customer?
The tariff is available for everyone, especially those who may see their income reduced, but energy usage increase, while isolating or working from home. (AH, that’s most of us!)
“The main aim of the tariff is to provide customers with some financial breathing space. It also has the benefit of being fixed, which means that their prices will not increase through the next winter,” said Mr Bolt.
The UP Support tariff is available now and opens to both new customers and existing customers that wish to switch to this tariff.
