Npower is one sixth of the nutorious 'Big Six' energy suppliers in Great Britain. Its name came from the original company that it birthed from, National Power. Following a number of acquisitions and breakdowns, the company that we know today came about, but not under the same ownership, however. Npower is now wholly owned by Innogy, a German subsidiary of conglomerate 'RWE'. In Which?'s 2017 customer service survey, Npower scored the lowest out of every British supplier; however, this could become slightly irrelevant given their plans to merge with neighbouring Big Six company, SSE.

Npower price increases
British Gas have made the news recently with their price hikes in September 2017, but Npower were actually the company to raise their prices the most in 2017, with their average tariff seeing an increase of around £109 per year. This works out as an overall price rise of 9.8%: 4.8% for their gas tariffs and a massive 15% for electricity.
This price increase has led to over 1.4 million customers nationwide paying 9.8% more for their standard variable tariff with Npower. This could perhaps explain the 1% drop in Npower's, but it seems to be the general trend within the Big Six as smaller, independent suppliers continue to claw back market share.
