Thousands caught up in energy price rip-off.


Households are paying “extortionate” charges to Britain’s energy networks for routine jobs, an investigation by The Times has found. Some customers are being charged up to £5,400 to have their meters moved, while others are paying only hundreds of pounds for the same work.

The energy watchdog is to investigate the monopolies that run Britain’s gas and electricity network after The Times uncovered the latest pricing scandal to hit the industry.

Charges for work on domestic meters and cables in some regions are so high that households are turning to the black market, potentially putting themselves or their neighbours at risk.
