Brits have struggled to submit meter readings today ahead of energy price increases coming into affect tomorrow, April 1. Websites of leading providers are struggling to cope with the onslaught of customers, with phone lines also having issues.
As of April 1, millions of households will see their energy bills increase to £1,971 as the energy price cap rises.
So today, Brits have rushed to submit meter readings – but found themselves unable to access their provider’s website.
SSE, British Gas, E.ON and EDF are among the providers with website issues.
Money expert Martin Lewis has been advising Brits to submit their meter readings today – dubbing it #MeterReadingDay.
