E.ON attempted to capitalise on SSE’s price rise announced earlier this week by today reassuring its customers it will not raise its energy bills this year.

The supplier claims it will stick to its price promise despite SSE raising its gas and electricity prices by 9% starting October this year, which has been labelled as a “serious blow” for consumers.

Tony Cocker, Chief Executive of E.ON UK said: “In May I promised our millions of customers that we would not raise our standard energy prices and given all the concern and speculation in recent days, I wanted to let our customers know that our standard energy prices won’t rise one penny in 2012.”

The supplier claims it is working towards introducing a simple and efficient system of tariffs for its customers.
