The Government is doing everything within its power to help hard-pressed families keep their energy bills down.
In December we announced plans that will save customers around £50 on their energy bills, protecting support through the ECO scheme for vulnerable households, extending the scheme for an extra two years, and making an additional £450 million to make Britain's homes more energy-efficient.
