E.ON has announced a 4.3% price rise that will take effect on 18 January 2014.
The E.ON price rise means the average E.ON dual-fuel, direct debit customer will see their energy bill go up by £54, with the average E.ON bill up from £1,370 to £1,385 a year.
What we say
uSwitch Director of Consumer Policy Ann Robinson said of the news:
"This round of price hikes has added to the burden for consumers struggling to afford to stay warm. The Government has tried to lend a hand, but suppliers now have to play their part too. They must do the right thing by passing the cuts on to their customers ASAP so that households can feel the benefit throughout winter. Suppliers that are unable to provide this much-needed relief this year should backdate it so that customers don’t lose out.
“However, consumers also need to understand that even with this reduction, their bills will still be higher. This is why they must continue to fight their own corner by ensuring that they are paying the lowest possible price for their energy. The Government reduction is welcome, but it’s small change compared to the price cut you could get by switching to one of the cheapest tariffs on the market.”
