A quarter of households in debt to their energy provider are choosing to "turn a blind eye" to their mounting bills in the hopes the bill will decrease in time.
According to a uSwitch survey carried out by YouGov:
- A further 21% intend to pay off their debt with a lump sum.
- Some 43% said they would increase their direct debit.
- Worry over mounting debt also lead as many as one in 10 customers to seek a repayment plan with their energy supplier.
