Report: UK’s Energy Crisis Response Could Include Winter Power Cuts | Farsnews Agency

Businesses and even consumers could face blackouts this winter under government crisis plans as concerns grow over power supplies, it emerged.

Under the government’s latest “reasonable worst case scenario”, officials believe the UK could experience blackouts for several days in January if cold weather combines with gas shortages to leave the country short of power, The Guardian reported.

Concerns are mounting over the toll on households this winter as new forecasts showed annual energy bills are forecast to top £4,200 from January, triggering a warning that Britons face “serious hardship on a massive scale” without government intervention.

The deepening energy crisis has piled further pressure on the Tory leadership candidates, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak, who are split on how to support households struggling with the rising cost of living.
