In response to today’s announcement that SSE will be raising its prices by an average of 8.2%, Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said:
“This inflation-busting price rise will be a massive blow to SSE customers at a time when rising energy prices are consistently one of the top worries for hard-pressed consumers.
“Current plans to reform the energy market simply don’t go far enough. We want the Government to intervene to make sure everything possible is done to keep prices in check. We need simpler pricing, we need to break the stranglehold of the biggest energy companies by separating domestic supply from generation and the Government must make sure that its own policies are not adding unnecessary costs to consumers’ bills.”
