In response to Npower’s announcement that it will be increasing its gas and electricity prices, Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said:
“Three of the Big Six energy companies have now announced inflation busting price hikes just before winter kicks in, piling on the squeeze for already hard-pressed consumers. Rising energy prices are consistently a top worry for people, and with consumers having to foot the bill for new generation including nuclear power, it’s essential we know the price we are paying for our energy is fair.
“We now need an independent expert review, that reports to Parliament, of all government energy policy and wholesale market costs, with an assessment of whether consumers are getting value for money and where savings can be made.”
