EDF Energy to raise prices by 10.8% from December
10:32am Friday 26th October 2012 in News
Another three million households faced higher energy bills today after EDF Energy became the latest supplier to increase tariffs.
The company will raise prices for domestic gas and electricity by 10.8%, meaning its typical dual-fuel bill for a direct debit customer will rise by £122 to £1,251 a year.
EDF, which is the fifth major supplier in recent weeks to announce higher prices, said the change will take effect from December 7.
It blamed the cost of wholesale energy and government charges including mandatory energy efficiency and social schemes.
"We know that customers will not welcome this news and do not want to see prices going up," said EDF director Martin Lawrence.
"It is worth pointing out that one in five of our customers are already on competitive fixed priced tariffs and will not be affected by these price changes this winter."
