Every energy company is obliged to generate a certain amount of electricity from ‘green’ sources like wind and the extra cost of this is passed onto consumers.
The so-called ‘Renewable obligation’ already adds around £20 to the average energy bill every year and this is expected to go up to more than £50 by 2020.

“As costs fall so it is right that consumers should pay less in subsidies for new projects,” he said."
“We don’t just need greener energy – we need cheaper energy too.”
