Combat wholesale energy price rises by making a few simple changes....
Wholesale energy prices refer to the price of a fuel product, such as gas, coal or oil, on the world market. When wholesale energy prices rise, for whatever reason, this puts pressure on electricity and gas suppliers to pass these increased costs onto their customers.
As a result of wholesale energy prices rising, many UK householders have found that their gas and electricity bills have risen; some companies have raised their prices more than others. But you can save money by making several small changes such as:
- Turning down your thermostat by just a few degrees – this could take more at least 10% off your fuel bill
- Consider swapping to a duel fuel contract as most suppliers will offer a discount
- Make sure you pay on time as this could mean an extra discount
- Switch energy providers and find a more competitive tariff
