Which energy company will raise its prices next?
Sources at uSwitch announced yesterday that SSE will be increasing its gas and electricity prices by 9% or £119 from 15th October 2012.
This increase will hit 8.4 million customers and will add an extra £119 on to the average annual standard dual fuel bill, which will increase from £1,235 to £1,354 as a result. Other energy providers are set to follow suit and announce increases soon. So what can homeowners do?
Only last week uSwitch reported on some impressive savings that owners of solar panels were enjoying and urged homeowners to switch to solar in a bid to battle spiralling energy bills.
