Other energy firms 'likely to put up energy bills'

Industry sources tell me that other firms are likely to put up energy bills over the next few weeks following SSE's decision.


Energy bills to go up by 9%

Britain's second largest energy firm SSE has said it will increase gas and elecricity tariffs by an average of 9% in October. It is blaming price increases in wholesale markets, as well as rising costs of using the National Grid network.
