Drop In SWALEC Gas Prices

The energy supplier behind SWALEC is bringing down gas prices by 4.1% on April 30th before extending its energy price freeze until at least July 2016.

The move by SSE is the latest cut by one of the UK's Big Six energy firms.

It said: ``There are significant other costs within energy bills, including those relating to government-sponsored environmental and social policies and the roll-out of smart meters.

``SSE believes that such policies should be funded in a more progressive way related to people's ability to pay and believes that the GB-wide smart meter roll-out should be subject to review to identify what can be done to minimise its costs and optimise its benefits to all energy consumers in GB.''
