With costs of energy bills rapidly rising, we've put together an interactive map to show total energy consumption in each south east London area.

Ofgem has announced the new energy bill price cap will rise by 54 per cent from April.

It means energy prices will rise by £693 a year for millions of households after regulator Ofgem hiked the price cap on bills to £1,971.

The energy regulator is responsible for the energy price cap which limits how much providers can charge customers on their energy bills.

The increase follows a 12 per cent rise in October and will take effect from April. 

The price cap applies to around 15 million British households who have chosen to pay for their electricity on the open market rather than under fixed-price deals.

The current energy price cap is £1,277 and is reviewed twice a year with the next change to begin in October where rates could rise even further.

We've put together a map which shows total domestic electricity consumption by Middle Layer Super Output Area (MSOA) in 2020.

The areas on the map are Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lewisham and Southwark.

The darker the green, the higher the total kWH of energy used.
