EDF Energy has announced its second price rise this year with electricity and gas prices set to rise by an average £70 – act now to beat the increase.
The energy company upped the price of its standard variable electricity tariff by 2.7% in June, but will now hike the cost of electricity by 6.1% and gas by 6% from 31 August.
The change only affects those on EDF’s standard tariff, so those on a fixed price tariff, prepayment tariff or the safeguard tariff for vulnerable customers will not see any change.
Today’s announcement follows a rise of 2.7% on its standard variable electricity tariff in June.
