Searches for online advice for soaring energy bills increase by 85%
Demand in December was nearly five times higher than pre-pandemic, according to new research
As people are struggling to deal with the rising cost of living, views of online advice around support for billpayers to pay energy bills increased by 85% in December.
That’s according to the latest report by Citizens Advice Scotland, which suggests the number of people accessing webpages relating to ‘grants and benefits to help you pay your energy bills‘ was nearly five times higher than before the pandemic.
These figures follow worrying news of dozens of collapses in the energy retail market and the rise in the price cap in autumn 2021.
The charity also said that traffic to its web page related to ‘dealing with debts’ increased 44% in December compared to the previous month and 194% from December 2020.
