EDF Energy puts prices up by 10.8% because they're gits
Brilliant news! Three million of you will now have higher energy bills for seemingly no good reason after those arses at EDF put their tariffs up by 10.8% and no-one wants to do anything about it.
Just in time for winter.
EDF will whack their prices for domestic gas and electricity up, which means a typical dual-fuel bill for a direct debit customer will rise by £122 a year. That's £1,251 you're spending, each year, on gas and electricity from these berks.
Like all the other energy suppliers, EDF are blaming these hikes on rising wholesale prices and increased running costs. EDF director Martin Lawrence said: "We know that customers will not welcome this news and do not want to see prices going up."
"Our new prices will however be cheaper on average than those of all the other major suppliers which have announced standard price rises so far this autumn."
Well done to the energy sector on becoming a group that has done the near-impossible, by proving to be more shark-eyed and unpopular than all the banks put together.
