According to the latest data, the average bill was 587, an increase from 360 in 2008.
In the most extreme cases, householders are forced to choose between food expenditures in heating or cold weather.
Last winter, in order to reduce costs, there was no heating for all consumers for three quarters, and 90 people planned to do the same this year.
Rising prices are especially bad for older people, who are more likely to stay at home during the day and have longer heating times.
It is worrying that some people who turn off the heating to save their bills may die from the cold.
In recent weeks, five of the six biggest energy giants have raised tariffs by an average of £ 90 a year.

Conservatively estimated that at least 1 out of 10 deaths-2,570-were caused directly by the fact that fuel poverty and people could not afford to buy heat.
The consumer website uSwitch compiled the heating bill data.
"Last winter, in order to reduce costs, there were three quarters of households without heating," the company said.
Soaring energy bills have made it possible for almost nine out of the ten households planning to supply energy quantitatively this winter.
The recent price increase for energy suppliers will increase the energy bill by £ 314,000 and plunge another household into fuel poverty.
"Many families will feel that there is no choice but to turn off the heating, and doing so will endanger their health.
