Household electricity bills set to increase by a third, driven by rising wholesale and policy costs
Aurora’s latest analysis looks at the effects on household bills of rising wholesale prices and policy costs.
Main findings include:
- Household electricity bills are projected to increase by nearly a third to £807 per annum by 2025
- Driven by a rise in low carbon subsidies, policy costs will account for more than a quarter of household electricity bills, increasing by £70 per annum between now and 2025
- Wholesale electricity costs are expected to increase by 30% by 2025, predominantly driven by a rise in gas prices
