Scottish Power legally mugs the consumer and gets to do it with a smile.

Energy generator and provider Scottish Power joins the rest of the energy companies by continuing their strangle hold of squeezing the consumer by announcing they are to increase their prices by 15%.

Gas Bills with them are set to rise by 15% and electricity by 14% .Scottish power which has approx 5.2 million customers in which to exploit, has decided to use the same script and say itís due to the UK wholesale price.

It is now the forth energy company to announce double-digit price increases which includes British Gas, Npower and EDF.

May I suggest to that you change your energy supplier to a provider and not a generator/provider because the generators are the ones who set the wholesale price in the UK .Try selecting a provider who offers a fixed price that Ďdoesnítí charge you a standing charge or has a varying rate for increased usage but just a flat rate no matter how much you use.

Iím with EBICo Ltd - using the market, making a difference (Equigas) for gas which for me means Iím charged 2.43pence per unit; I have to stress that,íThat is ití No! Varying rate, No standing charge and if you include the vat thatís 2.55pence per unit, no matter what part of the UK you live in .Iím stressing this bit because so many gullible people say that their rate is cheaper but donít take into account that the rate charge goes up after a certain amount of usage, for example, for gas when I use to be with British gas it went up after 941 kwh to a higher rate.

Britain's energy price hikes are blatant profiteering

The price rises by the energy companies in the past decade here in the UK are not just unjustified they're blatant profiteering says the Competition Commission.

They have used the same excuse of 'Increase of wholesale prices' too frequently that it's warying a bit thin.Energywatch says when you' control the companies that set the wholesale price as well as sell it to the British consumer you can use this excuse at you leisure .

If you remember last year, wholesale energy prices fell dramatically but this decrease was not passed on to the consumer.

An Energywatch statement confirms that energy companies are creaming off extra profits for as long as they are allowed to get away with it.

Chief executive, Allan Asher, said: "We believe there should be a Competition Commission inquiry into whether there is a cartel at work. Consumers have had enough of the relentless profiteering from energy companies. They deserve to know that everything is being done to stamp this out"
