Scottish Power to raise prices by 8.6% from 6th December 2013
The Falkirk Stove Company, one of Scotland’s Leading Wood Burning & Multi-Fuel Stove Retailers. Supplying Wood Burning and Multi Fuel Stoves to Falkirk, Stirling, Linlithgow, Edinburgh and across the whole of Scotland.
Scottish Power has announced a price rise of 8.6% for dual-fuel energy bills from 6 December.
The company said it would increase gas prices by 8.5% and electricity prices by 9%.
The move comes amid political wrangling over the issue of energy bills, with the government planning to review the green levies that form part of a bill.
On Monday, Scottish Power was hit by an £8.5m penalty for misleading doorstep and telephone sales.
The price rise would lead to a £113 increase in the average annual dual-fuel bill to £1,424, Scottish Power said. It will affect about 2.2 million Scottish Power customers.
However, different areas of the country will face different price increases. For example, the rise will be 10.2% on average in southern England, but 7.3% in some areas of Scotland.
With another increase in fuel costs, has there ever been a better time to invest in a Wood Burning or Multi Fuel Stove.
