Low-cost building management systems (BMS) can help dampen the effect of energy suppliers’ price rises
Installing a low-cost building management system (BMS) can help you reduce energy usage and therefore somewhat dampen the negative effect of the latest round of energy tariffs rises announced by the UK’s largest suppliers.
The first Bix Six supplier to announce a price rise was British Gas, who is adding £44 to the typical fuel bill for 3.5 million customers in the second increase this year, according to a news report.
From 1 October a typical dual fuel customer will pay £1,205 a year – £104 more than before the first increase took effect on 29 May.
Announcing the second increase, Centrica said the cost of buying energy in the wholesale market had risen by 20% since April.
Mark Hodges, the chief executive of Centrica’s consumer business, said: “We have today reluctantly announced plans for an increase in our standard variable tariff. We understand that any price increase adds extra pressure on customers’ household bills. However, this reflects the sharp rise in wholesale energy costs.”
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.
