Energy bills have been steadily rising in recent years and could cost the average home more than £1,000 a year by the end of the decade. The average household paid £451 a year for their electricity in 2010. By 2021 that figure had risen to £707, meaning bills have risen on average 4.7pc every year. If that trend continues, households could expect to pay around £1,115 each year for their electricity by 2030. Gas bills could also rise by £53 to £610 over the same period, according Government statistics analysed by plumbing supplier Plumb Nation. The combined cost for energy would be £1,725, the research found, equivalent to a 36pc increase on today’s prices.
