William Steele, Director, Power NI Customer Solutions, said: "We work very hard to keep our prices as low as possible, but regrettably world fuel prices have been increasing over recent months.  Like other suppliers, we have no choice but to pay these increased costs, which feed into the cost of wholesale electricity and have a knock-on effect on our tariffs.

"In these challenging times we held off making this change for as long as possible, with this price change not coming into effect until July.  As soon as we see an opportunity to reduce prices, as we did last year, we will do so without delay. For any customers who are worried about paying a bill, there is no need to be concerned, please get in contact as we can help you."
