Which? response to Npower’s price increase
Alex Neill, Which? Managing Director of Home Products and Services, said:
“Npower already has the most expensive standard tariff available and has come bottom in our satisfaction survey for the eighth year in a row. This further price increase will leave customers questioning why they’re paying even more for their gas and electricity.
“Npower’s customers looking to avoid the price rise should look to switch immediately, as they could be saving up to £433 a year once the increase comes into effect.”
