SSE Airtricity gas price to soar by an inflation-busting 7.6% in Northern Ireland
SSE Airtricity has announced an inflation-bustng 7.6% price rise for gas.
The increase, which takes effect from March 31, will hit home and small business customers.
The price rise means a typical household gas customer will see costs increase rise by £36 annually.
The firm said the price rise was a result of 'external costs outside of SSE Airtricity’s control', including increases in global wholesale gas costs which have risen by over 50% in the last 12 months.
