110,000 families in 'serious arrears' on their utility bills

MORE than 110,000 families and individuals who ran up huge arrears on their electricity and gas bills over the past nine months had to sign up to special repayment plans to avoid being cut off.
"On average, Bord Gais is now disconnecting 230 homes per month from gas supplies -- and the majority of cases involve people in privately owned homes.
In contrast, the ESB is now disconnecting an average of 900 Irish homes each month -- roughly 30 homes a day -- for the non-payment of electricity bills.
Charities including St Vincent de Paul, Simon and Threshold are now deeply worried that the numbers of Irish families sinking into 'energy poverty' will spiral over the winter months.
Age Action warned that pensioners were exceptionally vulnerable to such energy poverty, being extremely reliant on heat over the winter months. "
