ICSA slams rises in Airtricity's utility charges

Airtricity's decision to increase its electricity and gas charges by 12pc and 21pc respectively from October 1 has been slammed by the ICSA.

This comes in the wake of the Bord Gais announcement to raise energy prices by 22pc and rumours of the ESB plan to increases prices in the winter.

ICSA president, Gabriel Gilmartin said: "These increases could add as much as €500 to the annual electricity bill of a farmer."
