SSE joins the rest of the Big Six energy suppliers and announces price hikes

SSE is the last of the Big Six energy suppliers to announce price hikes, the company revealing that the typical dual fuel bill for its 2.3m customers on standard energy tariffs will rise by around £76 a year from July.

The increase is due to a 5.6pc increase in SSE’s standard gas tariffs and a 7.7pc rise for electricity.

Stephen Forbes, SSE’s chief commercial officer, said its bosses “deeply regret” the price rise and had “worked hard” to withstand costs that are outside of their control by reducing their own internal costs.

“However, as we’ve seen with recent adjustments to Ofgem’s price caps, the cost of supplying energy is increasing and this ultimately impacts the prices we’re able to offer customers,” he said.
