Millions of Londoners are rationing their fuel usage this winter due to the high cost of energy. We’ve polled over 1000 households across London and uncovered some worrying findings, including a correlation between rising fuel costs in London boroughs and the level of concern over increasing energy prices in households.
Almost a third (30%) of Londoners said they simply couldn’t afford an increase in costs caused by a period of unusually cold weather.
When it comes to the affordability of heating, 70% of the Londoners we quizzed admitted to being “concerned” about the issue. Half (49%) said they will need to ration their energy usage this winter, while only a quarter (24%) of respondents said they never feel the need to cut back during the cold.
The research also shows that the average annual energy bill in London stands at £2,058 per year, forcing many to turn down their heating to save money.
