Energy companies regularly use rising wholesale prices as a justification for why they raise energy bills for customers.
However, the calculations by which the "justify" their price increases are utterly incomprehensible. As such OFGEM have hired forensic accountants to scrutinise the wholesale fuel prices paid by the "Big Six" energy companies.
Given that OFGEM can't understand the pricing structure of the energy industry, how are we poor saps (the end users) meant to understand it?
Q: Why do the energy companies make it so complicated?
A: RIP OFF!
