Over 285,000 UK households face rising energy bills in June

In June there are 166 fixed-rate energy tariffs coming to an end, which will mean rising energy bills for over 285,000 UK homes. This has been revealed by the latest data from comparison site comparethemarket.com, which also claims that the average bill increase for affected homeowners could be as much as £296.94 a year.

This figure is based on these households failing to take any action when their current tariff comes to an end and them being automatically moved onto their supplier’s more expensive standard default tariffs. Comparethemarket.com has also found that the country’s energy suppliers could be subsequently set for what it calls an ‘inertia windfall’ of £84 million, if bill payers let their tariffs roll over.
