Two of the biggest energy suppliers in the UK have just increased their prices, with all six of the major players in the domestic energy market having announced price hikes.
EDF Energy have become the last of the "big 6" energy suppliers to announce price increases.
If you're with E.ON or Scottish & Southern Energy (incorporating Atlantic, Scottish Hydro, Southern Electric and Swalec), your bills could have just risen by an average of 18% (gas) and 11% (electricity) – nearly £200 on a typical bill!
According to independent experts, energyhelpline.com, the latest increase from EDF Energy will mean average bills will go up by up to £120 per year.
But there are plenty of cheap energy tariffs around. Mark Todd, director of energyhelpline, says:
"Fixed rate deals of 1-4 years are available at lower costs than standard prices and there are internet rates offering savings of about £300 a year. In hard-pressed Britain today a £300 saving for 10 minutes work must be worth checking out."
