There is a way you can avoid these increases. I’ll explain this in a moment. Meantime, these increases will apply to customers of:
Scottish Hydro Electric
Marks and Spencer Energy
SSE are the second largest energy supplier in the UK. With 9 Million customer accounts, these 9% increases will add around an extra £100 per year to each customers energy bills.
SSE have already removed themselves from the competitive market, by removing all their cheaper online energy deals. This is just another kick in the teeth for their customers who are reluctant to switch to a cheaper deal.
SSE have caught onto the fact that many of their customers will stick with them, no matter what they charge. This just gives them confidence to charge whatever they like.
Scottish Power and EDF Energy have a great fixed price deal with no get out penalties if you change your mind later.

I asked Scottish Power what they had to say about this. The following information was provided by Scottish Power!
Energy Prices To Rise 9%
SSE today announced that they will be increasing their gas and electricity prices by 9% or £119 from 15th October 2012.
The increase will add an extra £119 (average) to 8.4 million customers’ annual standard dual fuel bill, which will increase from £1,235 to £1,354 as a result.
