SSE to raise gas and electricity prices by 8.2%
SSE customers will see an average 8.2% rise in gas and electricity prices from 15 November, the company has announced.
The energy firm said the rise reflected higher costs of buying wholesale energy and paying to deliver it to customers’ homes, plus government levies.
The price rises will affect about 4.4 million electricity customers and 2.9 million gas customers, not including those on fixed-price tariffs.
SSE’s average annual dual-fuel energy bill will rise by £106 to £1,380.
