Energylinx have been advised this am that SSE (Scottish and Southern Energy plc) are increasing their domestic energy prices by 11% on average for electricity and 18% on average for gas with effect from the 14th September 2011.
Citing reasons such as increased distribution costs, the cost of environmental and social schemes together with the increases in wholesale energy prices, this makes SSE the third big six energy supplier to announce double digit price increases in recent weeks.
Energylinx would encourage all customers to stay ahead of the increases by seriously considering capped or fixed rate energy tariffs, but our advice would be do it now do not wait, more and more of the fixed price deals are being withdrawn from the market.

British Gas has today announced an increase to its tariffs for domestic gas and electricity
British Gas has today begun notifying its customers it will raise domestic tariffs for gas by an average 18%, and for electricity by an average 16%, on 18 August 2011.
British Gas recognises the difficulties customers are facing in the current economic climate, but today's announcement follows steep rises in wholesale costs, which have increased 30% since last winter because of higher global demand for gas, driven by increased consumption in Asia and the impact on supply of unrest in the Middle East and North Africa.
Britain now imports almost 50% of the gas it needs from other countries around the world, and British Gas has to pay the market rate in the global wholesale energy market.
British Gas aims to offer competitive prices and protect customers from cost increases in the wholesale market as far as possible. But the company cannot continue to make a loss on the energy it sells, as it needs to be a profitable business in order to invest in future sources of energy for Britain. The company is investing around ¬£1.5billion this year alone in securing new sources of energy for its customers.
