Energy bills

Earlier this month the Prime Minister surprised the energy industry when he said during Prime Minister's Questions that the government would introduce laws to make suppliers give customers the cheapest tariffs. The energy industry regulator Ofgem waded into the debate with proposals to force suppliers to tell customers about the cheapest gas and electricity tariffs they have on offer and to make bills clearer and simpler. So what affect will these changes have on our bills at a time when three of the biggest energy companies have announced price increases?

Do you understand how your gas and electricity bills are charged at the moment? What experience have you had of switching suppliers? Do you feel you are paying too much fixed monthly payments and are struggling to get them reduced? Are you looking for a better deal?

Whatever your question you can ask Paul Lewis and guests Ann Robinson, energy expert at uSwitch, Christine McGourty, Director of Communications at Energy UK and Theresa Perchard, Director of Policy at Citizens Advice for their advice. Email moneybox@bbc.co.uk or call 03 700 100 444 between 1 and 3pm on Wednesday 31st October.
