Money Box Live: Energy pricing

Are we paying too much for our energy? How easy is it to tell? And what should we do about it?

Despite record numbers of people switching energy provider last year, 66% of households are still on more expensive 'default' standard tariffs. It's a market that's been described as 'broken'. So how best to fix it?

Join Louise Cooper and panel as they discuss possible solutions as well as bring much needed clarity to the opaque world of standard variables, standing charges and why we are so stubborn about switching.

If you have a question about the cost of your energy or how energy prices work, email us: now or call 03700 100 444 from 1pm to 3:30pm on Wednesday. Standard geographic call charges apply.
