Electricity bills to go up by 4.8% on October 1

SPAIN (Agencies) The Ministry of Industry announced yesterday that electricity bills will be going up by a shocking 4.8% on October 1. The reason behind it -which amounts to a 30% rise in three years- is that 'it costs the supplier more', according to one of the energy companies, Endesa. Consumers organizations throughout the country have called the rise variously as 'unnecessary', 'unjustified', 'barbarous', 'indecent' and the like. One of them, FACUA, says that the government "bends to the interests of the comapnies and not the consumer." So far this year our bills have gone up by about 10%. (Please leave your comments below.)
