Energy tariffs announcement - Greenpeace response

20 November, 2012

Responding to Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Ed Davey's announcement on tariffs, Greenpeace energy campaigner Louise Hutchins said:

“The government can tinker with the tariff system all it likes, but until Britain reduces its reliance on volatile world gas markets, even the cheapest tariff will keep rising.
 
"If the prime minister is really serious about tackling bills, he should stop his chancellor’s dash for gas in the Energy Bill and focus on clean, home-grown renewables and efficiency measures. That’s the only way to bring bills down in the long run.”
