Npower said wholesale energy prices for 2008 had increased from last year by 66% for electricity, and 60% for gas. (This is UTTER RUBBISH, wholesale energy prices have actually reduced in the last few months!!)
However, its price rises have already been condemned by independent consumer watchdog Energywatch.
"If this is the shape of things to come over the next few months, we are going to see hundreds of thousands of consumers wonder how they can afford to keep their homes warm," said Energywatch spokesman Karl Brookes. ( Nice one Karl, shame your organisation can only stamp their feet in protest like all the other Government appointed Watchdogs!!!)
Yeah! Funny how price rises only kick in at a time when we are all using the maximum amounts of energy isn't it?? Global warming.....BRING IT ON I SAY!!
