'Big Six' accused of campaign to neuter energy saving

2nd December, 2013

Andrew Warren, Director for the Association for the Conservation of Energy has accused the Big Six energy firms of "orchestrating an campaign to neuter energy saving".

Writing in the Sunday Express, he said it was "predominantly to draw attention away from their price gouging".

"Over the next two years the Big Six will avoid spending 1.3billion on installing efficiency measures while taking 360million more annual fuel sales than they expected.

"There will be 600,000 households paying an average of 400 more each year than they would have done if they had received the energy efficiency makeover.

"I am sure that cannot have been what the Prime Minister had in mind when he called for the overhaul of green taxes", Mr Warren added.
