Tonik Energy has become the latest supplier to announce an increase in prices that will affect under 10,000 customers.
It follows Ofgem’s energy price cap hike for standard variable and prepayment tariffs to £1,254 and £1,242 annually respectively.
Tonik Energy’s price rise will take the total bill for an average medium-sized dual fuel customer on the standard variable tariff to £1,192 a year, below the regulator’s cap.
It said in a statement: “Life Energy continues to be one of the most competitive standard variable tariffs on the market, as well as Tonik’s greenest tariff available, with 100% renewable electricity and 10% green gas with the remainder being totally carbon offset.
“The renewable energy company believes that the changes to Life Energy are a fair reflection of the current economic and environmental conditions and the best way to ensure a sustainable future for everyone.”
