Avoid overpaying for energy with the help of HeatingSave low-cost BMS
The latest Big Six to announce a price hike is npower, who have just announced an average 5.3% dual fuel price hike, amounting to about £64 a year for a million customers, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
The rise is made up of a 4.4% rise in gas prices and a 6.2% increase in electricity. It will see a typical dual fuel gas and electricity annual bill climb to £1,230. The price rise would not affect existing customers on a fixed deal, those with a prepayment meter, or customers on the Safeguard tariff.
Similar to British Gas, who pushed up prices a couple of weeks ago, the German-owned Npower blamed increases wholesale energy costs and government policy changes for the rise.
Simon Stacey, managing director, domestic markets at Npower, said: “Announcing this price change today isn’t a decision we’ve taken lightly.”
He said the costs energy suppliers are facing – “particularly wholesale and policy costs which are largely outside our control” – have been on the rise for some time “and we need to reflect these in our prices”.
This proves once again that installing energy management solutions is the best solution for cutting energy bills (since most of the biggest energy suppliers are likely to announce similar price hikes in the near future) and HeatingSave is here to help.
