Energy company SSE Power - which has around 1 million SWALEC customers in Wales - says fuel bills will be cut by around £50 a year on average.

Prices are due to drop from March 24th following a government decision to change green levies.

SSE says it will cost less to supply people with energy in 2014/15 and those on variable tariffs will see their rates cuts by 3.5%.

That means the annual bill for a typical dual fuel customer, averaged across all regions, will come down from £1,224 to £1,174 says SSE.

Unlike some other energy providers SWALEC customers with fixed and capped price tariffs will also have their rates cut by the same amount.

SSE, announced last month an average hike of 8.2 per cent.
