Benefits of Energy Price Drop Washed Away By Water Rise

The benefits of recent cuts to energy prices are being “washed away” by  water bill increases. That’s according to price comparison site uSwitch.com, which is advising hard-pressed households to consider getting a water meter to combat rising prices.

Water industry regulator Ofwat announced water bills will rise 5.7%. In comparison, most of the Big Six energy firms cut either their electricity or gas prices, in some cases by 6%.

Ann Robinson, Director of Consumer Policy at uSwitch.com said: “Yet again the relentless drain on our finances will leave households fighting for air. Energy prices have only just fallen by £34 or 2.6% and consumers are already seeing the benefit washed away by this £20 or 6% hike in water rates.”

She said that while consumers might not have the option of switching to a cheaper water supplier, they do have the option of moving to a water meter, which could save them £54 a year.  Ms Robinson added: “As a rule of thumb, if there are more bedrooms than people in a household then a water meter could be more cost effective.”

Water use in the workplace can be a costly item, particularly if you are not monitoring it on a regular basis. Ecomonitor can help you manage your water through our easy to install water monitoring software. For further information please call us on 0845 680 9939.
