Energy networks respond to proposals to move climate levies from electricity to gas bills

30 September 2021

It has been reported that Government is proposing to move climate levies, like the Feed in Tariff and Contract for Difference, from consumers' electricity bills to gas bills


In response to Government's proposals, a spokesperson from Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said:

“Ensuring a fair and equitable transition for all customers will be key to the successful decarbonisation of home heating. A one-size-fits all approach will not work across our diverse geographies and customer base, so they will need choice and access to a range of Net Zero compatible technologies including hydrogen boilers, district heating, hybrid heating systems, and heat pumps.

“This will require support from the private sector, taxpayers and billpayers and how that’s split is a decision for government but it’s essential that all Net Zero heating technologies are treated fairly. It is vital to ensure that customers are protected, so that no one ends up paying more and being inconvenienced by a product that may not work best for them”.
