People in Guernsey are being asked to have their say on how they are charged for electricity, to help decide what future bills will look like.

Technology, such as the use of solar power and other renewable energy, means some islander's electrical needs can be very different to others. The company now wants this to be taken into account so the grid cost is distributed fairly.

Guernsey Electricity is in the second stage of a consultation process to make sure it meets the changes in technology and wants to hear from customers.

Researchers will be speaking to people in St Peter Port and Beau Sejour. A short video will be played to explain how electricity is currently consumed and paid for and why this needs to change in the future.

Islanders are able to have their say through an online survey or by going to the pop up shop at 37, High Street. They can also drop into Guernsey Electricity's office at Electricity House, Northside, Vale.

Results from the consultation will be published in Spring 2019.
