Centrica, the owner of British Gas, has said that UK wholesale gas costs are around 15% higher for next winter than last, and non-commodity costs are expected to add a further £50 to the cost of supplying the average household this year. This means that the trend for domestic energy costs therefore remains upwards.
However, E.ON have confirmed that despite the global trend of rising wholesale prices, they will not be raising their gas and electricity prices for the remainder of 2012.
Recently some of the cheapest fixed deals have been pulled from the market, but various cheap deals are still available, providing fixed prices until next year.
Considering the current climate, it’s a good time to encourage your customers to compare energy prices today to switch to a cheap fixed deal, while they are still available.
