TABLE-Energy price changes by utilities in Britain

    Sept 6 (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.
    Energy regulator Ofgem on Thursday proposed a price cap on default energy bills to save
households about a billion pounds ($1.3 billion) a year and aims to implement it in time for
winter following a government promise to tackle "rip-off" prices.
    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.
