American shuls raise fees to pay for electricity bills

Shuls in New York are raising their fees, levying special 'fuel taxes' and consolidating events in order to compensate for rising oil and natural gas costs. In some cases, this means congregants paying an additional $150-$200 - which is a lot to tack onto a shul membership bill.

How long before this starts happening in UK synagogues?
