Power firm price hikes highlight need to wean UK off of gas
12 October 2012
Commenting on the rise in British Gas tariffs confirmed today, Friends of the Earth's Senior Energy Campaigner Paul Steedman said:
"Soaring gas prices are the main reason why fuel bills have rocketed in recent years.
"Unless our failing energy system is urgently overhauled, cash-strapped households will continue to pay a hefty price for our fossil fuel dependency.
"Ministers must abandon their plans for a reckless dash for gas, take rapid steps to make our homes and businesses more energy efficient, and harness the huge power potential from the wind, waves and sun."
