Energy Minister Huhne advises consumers to switch utility suppliers

Consumers should switch energy companies if their utility company raises prices, according to Energy Secretary Chris Huhne.

Speaking to The Observer newspaper, Mr Huhne said consumers “can hit them back where it hurts” if the supplier they are with raises prices.

Scottish Power this week announced that it will increase electricity prices from the 1st August by ten per cent and gas prices by almost twenty per cent, taking the average dual fuel bill to more than £1,200 and prompting industry experts to advise consumers to fix their energy price deals before the best fixed rate tariffs are pulled.
