Gas & electricity price rises hit Eckington hard.

Throughout 2006, households in Eckington have faced substantial energy price increases. On average, bills went up by over 42% for gas and over 27% for electricity.

Powergen's latest price increase has seen bills increase by 9.7% for electricity and 18.4% for gas

On the 8th January 2007, British Gas lifted its price freeze on its Click Energy tariff. Bills for those customers rose by 12.5% for gas and 9.5% for electricity. Also, over the coming months, various capped price energy tariffs come to end and customers are automatically reverted to their energy company's standard tariff.

Karen Darby, CEO of comments: "Wholesale gas prices may have been falling, but householders will have to seek a better deal by switching suppliers. It is not only those with SSE and British Gas that face an increase to their bills. Many households face higher bills in the New Year as their capped and fixed-price tariffs come to an end - this means they will effectively be subjected to a delayed price increase."

Inside-Eckington recommend changing your supplier if you are still with either Powergen for your electricity or British Gas for your gas. This is usually one of the most expensive line-ups to have your fuel. Paying by Direct Debit usually saves you more money too and every major supplier offers a Direct Debit guarantee so your money remains safe!
