The boss of npower tells me that Nick Clegg's announcement is a "little bit of a play for the Government to suggest this is a landmark deal."
Boss of npower tells me it is a "sad fact but energy prices are going to keep going up".
Nick Clegg told ITV1's Daybreak his new proposals on energy bills would help the poorest, as firms would have to write to them twice a year, telling them what the best tariff for their household would be.
A mother told Daybreak's Gregg Easteal that she is "feeling the pinch" from current energy prices as Nick Clegg is set to announce new proposals aimed to reduce bills for households.
Nick Clegg has told ITV1's Daybreak that people rarely get the best deal on their energy bills because of the confusion over the 120 tariffs available.
He added that energy firms will write to households once, or for the poorest, twice a year to let them know the cheapest tariff.
Consumer Focus's director of energy Audrey Gallacher said alerting customers to the best deal was "long overdue".
But she added: "While any move to help energy customers to get the best deal is welcome, it has to be the right method to reach people and the benefit must outweigh the cost.
"This needs to be more than a one-off mail shot and part of a wider strategy to help people overcome the burden of having to navigate hundreds of complex tariffs to get a decent price.
"Unfortunately, people don't trust energy firms and previous mail-outs have not always had the best take-up."
