British Gas owner Centrica already offers a Free Energy Saturdays tariff to customers in the US.

A spokesman for Centrica said: "We are looking to see whether we can introduce it into the UK for customers with a smart meter.

"Once we have trialled it, if it works then we could potentially offer it as a product for customers from the middle of next year."
