The Energy Bill is set to cost households an extra £100 a year by the end of the decade. The government says the cost is justified because clean power stations will help tackle climate change and create jobs.
ITV News' Consumer Editor Chris Choi reports.
It is the Government's long awaited light bulb moment. The Energy Bill published today envisages changes that would reach into our lives.
By 2020 we will be paying nearly £100 a year more for energy. But whether bills will come down again afterwards is still in dispute.
The coalition will announce plans on updating the energy infrastructure of pylons and power stations, and cutting our reliance on carbon.
