SSE Airtricity customers face price hike
SSE Airtricity is increasing household electricity prices by 7.5% from 1 October.
The company is the second largest energy supplier in Northern Ireland, and this is its first price increase in more than four years.
It said the increase is due to factors including wholesale energy costs, which are affected by global energy markets.
SSE Airtricity said the price change means a typical household customer will see electricity costs rise by around £2.75 per month, or around 9p per day.
SSE director of home energy David Manning said the company was focused on delivering value and service to customers.
"Having consistently delivered price decreases to our customers in recent years today's decision is not taken lightly and is the result of increasing costs outside of our control," he said.
