What's happening to electricity prices?
Electricity customers have spent the last few years seeing their prices go up and up and up.
From 2004 to February 2010 the average increase in electricity prices from the six major suppliers (British Gas, EDF Energy, npower, E.ON, Scottish and Southern Energy and ScottishPower) was 81% or £199.
All this change means getting the best electricity prices means running regular comparisons.
What can I do about rising electricity prices?
Electricity prices only seem to be going in one direction, but that doesn't mean you can't do something about it.
