Saving people £50 on energy bills

November 23, 2014 11:13 PM

Work by Liberal Democrats in government means that energy bills are £50 lower this year, the lights are kept on and we are reducing emissions.

Without our action, bills would be around £90 higher this year.

Liberal Democrats in government have made it a priority to make Britain greener whilst reducing energy bills for households.

We've nearly trebled the number of smaller suppliers who provide real competition to Labour's Big Six and energy companies are responding to our challenge to halve customer switching times by the end of the year.

In addition to helping lower bills we have more than doubled both renewable electricity investment and renewable electricity generation since 2010.

We're also helping people cut their bills permanently - by making home energy improvements through ECO and the Green Deal, and helping the most vulnerable with direct money off bills.

Through our support for green energy we are helping Britain maintain its competitive edge, reducing the impact of energy and climate change policies on heavy industry by up to 80 per cent.
