12% increase on energy bills

It's a figure most workers can only ever dream of when begging for a few extra crumbs. NHS nursing staff were initially offered a measly 1% which now after months of negotiations has edged up to 3%.

 

Not the case for energy companies who have whacked a staggering 12% on bills which will see an increase of £139 from £1,138 to £1,277.

 

Pre-payment customers will see costs rise by £153, from £1,156 to £,1309.

 

Campaigners have also said the increase "comes at the worst possible time" and warned it will push an extra 488,000 households into fuel poverty, with more than four million people already estimated to be behind on their household bills.

 

The increase comes as energy deals have reached the highest cost for more than two years, according to data from Compare the Market.

 

The average price for one of the cheapest deals on the market is currently £996, the highest charge seen since February 2019.

Awkward ... https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-08-05/europe-faces-an-energy-shock-after-gas-and-power-prices-rocket ... Germany faces 60% rise in energy costs ... Be ignored I suppose just like France, Germany and Spains hospitality staff shortages ... Hate not hope

 

FYI the wholesale price rises in Germany are roughly the same as UK
