The last of the big six energy companies has announced they will increase their energy price, EDF will increase their price tariff from 10th November.

EDF will increase their electricity prices by 4.5% and their gas prices by 15.4% as the wholesale market continues to put pressure on energy companies.

“We have absorbed rising wholesale energy, network and other costs as long as possible but must reluctantly now pass some of these through to consumers,” said Vincent de Rivaz, chief executive of EDF Energy.
