Comment from Co-operative Energy on British Gas price rises

Posted on 12 October 2012

Nigel Mason – Business Development Manager for Co-operative Energy:

"At a time of year when households start to use more energy, British Gas has raised its gas and electricity prices, adding £80 a year to their customers' dual fuel bills. In light of this, we want to remind and reassure our customers that we will not be increasing our prices this winter.

"We promised our customers on 1 August that they will not be hit by unexpected rises and face higher bills this winter. In fact we've committed to freeze our prices until at least April 2013. As well as our commitment not to raise prices, customers can be assured that any profits we make will be shared amongst them as, unlike our competitors, we're owned by our customers."
