How Are Yu Energy Prices Regulated?
Yu Energy’s prices are regulated by Ofgem, a non-ministerial government department and an independent national regulatory authority.
The maximum prices that energy suppliers can charge for gas and electricity in the UK are set by the energy regulator, Ofgem. Most energy suppliers base their prices on this maximum amount. However, in 2021, the regulator raised the price cap by 9%. As a result, most energy suppliers have raised their prices by this same amount of 9%.
