More needs to be done to stop the Big Six energy companies profiteering at the expense of hard-pressed households and the planet, charity Friends of the Earth said today, after MPs warned profits were seen to be "eroding trust".
Energy campaigner Guy Shrubsole said:
MPs have hit the nail on the head - more needs to be done to stop Big Six profiteering at the expense of hard-pressed households and the planet.
The energy companies continue to rake in huge profits while the Government fails to insulate our heat-leaking homes and keeps us hooked on the gas that's sent our fuel bills spiralling.
Ministers must set a clean power target to make the big energy firms invest in affordable renewable energy - and open up the market to communities generating their own renewable power from wind and solar schemes.
