electricity1The Consumer Council is encouraging households to check if they are on the best deal for their electricity. This follows Budget Energy’s decision to remove, or reduce, discounts on some of their existing tariffs. For some customers this will add up to a 19% increase, or £81 per year, to the electricity bill of consumers on Budget Energy’s discount tariffs.
