Earlier, the Telegraph newspaper, citing sources, reported that Truss could freeze electricity prices for millions of households in light of the energy crisis.

The agency, citing documents related to the discussion of such measures, says that Truss wants to keep them at current levels or even lower to avoid a sharp increase in electricity prices, which is planned in Britain next month. According to the documents, the new prime minister’s plan means that energy suppliers will be required to charge households a lower cost, and the British government will guarantee funding to cover the difference in price.

The Telegraph also added that Truss intends to freeze energy prices until the next parliamentary elections due in 2024.

At the end of August, the British energy regulator Ofgem announced an 80% increase in the maximum allowable electricity bill for consumers from October 1 due to rising global energy prices. Thus, the maximum bill for the British could increase by 1578 pounds, or 80%. The head of the energy regulator, Jonathan Brearley, warned that energy prices are likely to continue to rise, and called on the future prime minister of the United Kingdom to take new measures to combat rising prices.
