Electricity price increase March 2017

Impending electricity price increase

belt on meterElectricity wholesale prices are on the increase. We anticipate these increases will reach the consumer in March 2017. Although the energy suppliers have not yet implemented these increases, it is estimated they will be between 7% and 10% on your electricity prices.

This is particularly bad news for those who heat their homes with electricity. If this is you, then make sure you get yourself onto a fixed price electricity tariff before the increase.

It’s not all doom and gloom though. There is no sign of any gas price increases. If you are a gas consumer, you can beat these increases by switching to a cheaper online fixed price energy deal.
