TABLE-Energy price changes by utilities in Britain

    Aug 8 (Reuters) - Britain's biggest energy companies have announced price increases this
year, citing higher wholesale prices and the cost of government policies to support renewable
energy generation.
    The big utilities have been under scrutiny by the government, which is putting a price cap
on standard variable tariffs to combat what it has called "rip-off" energy prices.
    Energy regulator Ofgem said the cap should be in place by the end of the year.
    British Gas is the latest firm to raise prices - the second time it has done so this year. 
    Below are changes the "Big Six" utilities have made to their dual fuel standard variable
tariff. The six energy suppliers are Centrica's British Gas, SSE, E.ON
, EDF Energy, Innogy's Npower and Iberdrola's Scottish
Power.
