Swalec announces 8.2% jump in gas and electricity prices

Pembrokeshire residents who get their gas and electricity supplies through Swalec are facing hefty price rises again, just as the weather begins to turn colder.
Swalec’s parent company SSE announced on Thursday that it is putting gas and electricity up by an average of 8.2% from November 15.
That works out at around an extra £2 a week for a typical customer who takes gas and electricity.
The company said the rise was needed as the wholesale cost of gas, delivery and Government-imposed levies were all costing the company more.
Last year, the company put prices up by 9%.
It has promised not to increase prices again for another year.
Will Morris, Swalec’s Managing Director, Retail, said: “We are not profiteers. This price change is about recouping the higher costs we are facing.”
