Many householders in Wales are struggling to pay energy bills
Householders in Cardiff are paying the highest electricity bills in Britain – even before the latest 9% price hike.
City residents in many cases pay more than consumers in London, Edinburgh and Manchester, according to latest Government figures.
And more than a million Welsh customers are set to be hit by price risesannounced by Scottish & Southern Energy (SSE), parent company of supplier Swalec, earlier this week.
The 9% hikes to gas and electricity payments, set to take effect on October 15, will add £8.53 a month on to the typical monthly direct debit dual fuel customer – taking the average annual bill to £1,274.
Consumers in Cardiff pay on average the highest annual direct debit electricity bills in Britain, according to the DECC’s most recent quarterly energy prices report, forking out £455 a year.
This means customers who pay their electricity bills by direct debit spend some £21 more than the UK yearly average of £434.
Only residents in Belfast pay more – £504 – but the DECC statistics state there is “limited competition in electricity” in the city.
Direct debit electricity customers in London pay £430 on average, while the figure is £445 in Edinburgh and £431 in Manchester.
Cardiff consumers paying their electricity bills by credit card spend on average £486 a year, compared to a British average of £472.
