We all know that our electricity bills are, and have been, going up for a while. We seem to be getting less and less for our money for exactly the same product, but why is this? Well, the general reasoning is due to the rising wholesale prices of electricity and upgrading the National Grid. Also, as the government demands more and more green energy, there is more investment needed in renewable generation. These factors and more are pushing up the price of the kWh without signs of stopping.
