Electric prices to rise next year

We should be prepared for higher electricity costs next year.

The Federal Electricity Commission says price are likely to rise on average 18% - that’s around CHF 220 a year.

But there will be significant differences between cantons - reflecting on how much electricity is generated locally. 

The main reason for the hikes is the expiry of futures contracts which has shielded consumers from energy price rises so far.
