There probably isn’t anyone in the UK who would say they are pleased with their monthly energy bill. And why should they? Almost every month, it seems that the bills keep getting bigger. The trend is certainly accelerating this winter, as our weather has been fairly harsh and everyone has to use more energy to heat their homes, offices and factories. Is it just the sign of the times, or is there something afoot? There are those in Parliament who think that the Big Six energy providers are actually inflating prices, partly to generate greater profits, partly due to poor buying decisions.
