Boost energy prices

Like all energy suppliers, Boost energy prices are subject to Ofgem's energy price cap, which sets the maximum rate suppliers can charge for their standard variable and prepayment tariffs. As of April 2022, the price cap for prepayment customers will be set at £2,017 for average usage on a standard dual fuel energy tariff.

Boost's current price cap for prepayment customers is slightly below this level at £2,014.72.
