“For far too long older people, hard-working families and those on low incomes have been subject to rip-off energy tariffs. Our energy price cap will protect households from unfair price rises in time for this winter when people can feel the pinch more acutely. We know that the cost of living is still a challenge for some families and today marks an important step in helping people to keep more money in their pockets.” – Theresa May
The prime minister has announced an energy price cap, which will launch this winter, affecting 12 million households.
The Domestic Gas and Electricity Bill will place a requirement on Ofgem to cap default and standard variable energy tariffs, which are the some of the most expensive rates in the market. The exact amount of the energy price cap has not been announced yet.
The government has also announced that it’s £6 Billion Home Energy Efficiency Scheme will be 100% focused on low income, vulnerable and fuel poor households. This involves a multi-measured approach by allowing the replacement of inefficient or broken heating systems, and installing insulation or other technologies. 15% of these measures are to be delivered in rural homes, and 17,000 solid walled homes are to be treated each year.

Your guys have just been and I’d like to say how helpful, friendly and professional they both were. They are a credit to your company and made me feel reassured. Thank you for responding so quickly and for getting the issue fixed.

We are a medium sized independent Builders & Plumbers Merchant / Home Improvement Centre based in the Channel Islands and always looking for quality products to add to our portfolio and offer to our discerning customers. Quality is important on a contained Island market as word of mouth plays a large part in the success of our business.
We took on EHC in 2012 and , in a nutshell, “haven’t looked back”. The Comet range of boilers has proved very popular with installers and householders alike and is now being seen by developers as the perfect choice for their projects giving us many repeat sales. We have also received very favourable comments on their solar equipment.
Having reliable back-up is a major factor on island and to this end EHC have proved to be a top-rated supplier always quick to deal with any minor problems that may arise.
Speed of delivery is excellent, positive feedback from our customers is as good as 100%, and their support at trade shows and provision of display product has provided us as a supplier with all we could ask for.

I want to extend a massive thank you to you for being so proactive and so friendly about my issues. Considering I emailed you on a Sunday and you had the resolve to me by circa 9.19am on Monday I am very impressed.
Thank you again for the excellent customer service shown by you and the team. A client problem resolved quickly, easily and pleasantly. It’s almost a rarity these days.
