Devastating increase energy price rises announced by regulator
Today the GB energy regulator, Ofgem, has announced the biggest ever increase to the energy price cap. The increase of £153 for prepayment customers and £139 from those paying by direct debit is likely to result in suppliers putting their prices up in October.
In Scotland, there are already over a quarter of households struggling with their energy costs, living in fuel poverty. Over 600,000 households. These price rises will increase this by tens of thousands.
