This seemingly routine task carries significant implications for managing energy costs accurately.

They help energy suppliers charge customers for the energy they use, so they don’t end up paying too much or too little.

Starting from 1st October, a new energy price cap will be enforced, affecting individuals using standard variable tariffs.
The energy price cap is set to decrease from £2,074 to £1,923.
