Click Energy are fourth company to announce tariff increase

With Click Energy implementing a 15.77% tariff increase on 1 December 2017, The Consumer Council is urging consumers to take control of their energy bills and check if there is a better energy deal to help save money. 

The increase will affect 26,000 Click Energy customers, and will see a typical Click Energy consumer’s electricity bill rise from £428 to £496. This will be an increase of £68 per year. 

Speaking about the tariff increase, Richard Williams, Head of Energy for The Consumer Council said; “Clearly this is more unwelcome news for Northern Ireland consumers, especially given that four of the five electricity companies have announced an increase in recent months. However, consumers can take action by shopping around for a better deal. 

 “Our online energy comparison tool makes it easy for consumers to find out if they are on the best tariff. The simple five step process allows consumers to compares tariffs from all five electricity suppliers.  At present consumers could potentially make a maximum typical annual saving of £145.  Consumers can also call us for guidance.”
