Why Has Genesis Increased their Prices?

There are many different parts of the electricity supply chain that require maintenance and upgrading such as towers, power stations, lines, and poles. As inflation rises, these costs change, which is why energy retailers adjust their prices accordingly.

It’s always a good idea to reduce your power consumption. There are many ways you can do this. But one of the most effective ways is to invest in energy efficient appliances. If you have an ancient washing machine, fridge or heater sitting in your home, it could be gobbling up a lot of energy and a culprit in your high energy bills. Consider shopping for a new unit that has a high energy star rating. This means that the product will use less energy to keep your food cold, or warm your home, which can drastically reduce your energy bill
