The Government said its energy announcement will save households an average of £50 a year.
To do this, it will reduce the current cost of levies by:
- Giving a rebate - Average customer saves £12 on their bill for the next two years
- Reducing the insulation scheme's cost - £30-35 off bills on average per year
- Saving on network costs - one-off average reduction of £5
The coalition has unveiled measures it says will knock £50 off the average energy bill, but some of that cost will be absorbed by taxpayers.
The Government has laid out its ideas on how to cut energy bills this winter - but the plan has been put together in haste.
