Worrying figures highlight energy consumers’ concerns

New findings reveal the growing financial burden of ever-increasing energy bills

Free yourself from soaring heating billsThe latest report compiled by HPI Coalition consumer research shows growing concern in the UK over the cost of energy. The survey suggests a grim outlook for many this winter with the majority voicing worries about prices.

HPI, market research specialists, found that over two thirds of those polled expect to have to turn down the heating this winter, 32% stating that they would ?definitely? have to switch off lights or lower thermostats in order to save money.

The survey discovered that it is not just pensioners that are feeling the squeeze, those aged between 25-34 were actually more likely to try to reduce their bills than the elderly.

The poll demonstrates the population?s fears over recent energy hikes and their lack of trust in suppliers, as well as the political parties. Although the majority believes government intervention is necessary, more than 40% don?t think any party will help in this matter.
