Anyone else got the letter about a price hike of 15% from the 1st march? Electric unit rate is going from the standard 15.96p to 17.63p. The letter claims the rise is due the increased cost their end including payments to government schemes for generation of renewable electricity, fitting smart meters and increases in certain charges for using the network. Anyone else shocked as 15% is quite a rise? Are other companies doing the same due to governments schemes and smart meter costs?
