Footing the bill

Have your say

I am very angry by the short-sighted decision by Ofgem to sanction a £12-a-year price increase to every household’s bill for the next eight years to allow for maintenance and upgrade of the national grid by energy firms (your report, 18 December).

This is outrageous. Surely this cost should come out of the massive profits made by energy companies rather than hard-pushed householders who are already struggling with fuel poverty at an all-time high.

This money should also come from the shareholders and if they get lower dividends then welcome to the real world.
