Energy firm to raise prices by 3.9% in UK

EDF Energy has become the latest “big six” supplier in the UK to hit customers with a hike in gas and electricity bills as it revealed tariffs will rise by 3.9% in January.

But the French-owned group claimed it was “holding back” the full impact of rising charges to limit the increase for its 3.7 million residential customers.

The tariff rise – which will come into effect on January 3 – means its average annual standard variable rate bill will increase by around £49 (€58) a year to £1,300 (€1,500).
