Shell’s home energy supplier hikes bills by 5.9pc

Shell’s home energy supplier hikes bills by 5.9pc

By Jillian Ambrose,

The energy supplier owned by Royal Dutch Shell will raise the energy bill of around 165,000 British homes by almost 6pc from next month.

First Utility, the largest energy supplier outside of the Big Six, said the rising price of wholesale energy and policy schemes pushed its costs higher by 9pc compared to last year.

As a result the supplier will “regrettably” lift its standard variable tariff for gas and power by an average of 5.9pc, or £5.58 a month.

First Utility’s default tariff will rise from an average of £1,132 a year to £1,199 a year, but this only applies to around 20pc of its customers. The rest have opted for fixed prices deals which won’t change. read more

CONVENT, La. (AP) — A major oil company is taking steps to honor once-forgotten slaves buried on its land west of New Orleans in an area where sugar plantations once abounded, an effort that some hope will grow into a larger movement to recognize and protect such cemeteries around the country.

The Shell Oil Company marked, blocked off and spruced up the tracts near its Convent refinery west of New Orleans and held dedication ceremonies in March, about five years after archaeologists confirmed the presence of slave burial grounds in 2013. The company also has been working with the nearby River Road African American Museum to arrange commemorative events and accommodate visitors.

It’s the latest example of the South’s decades-long path to acknowledging unsavory aspects of its history. read more
