Reforms of the energy market could see changes in the way energy suppliers relate to their cheap electricity customers.
Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) has responded to the government's Energy Market Reform (EMR) White Paper by welcoming the emphasis on protecting existing investments.
It claims this will be vital to maintaining the confidence of investors, while the report's recognition that a one size fits all approach to low carbon measures is not suitable has also been welcomed.
Chief executive of the energy supplier Ian Marchant commented: "Any changes to the electricity market arrangements have to be carefully thought through, in a way which avoids unintended consequences and is supportive of the investment that is needed now and in the next few years.
"It is on this basis that we will ultimately judge the white paper as a whole and to ensure this is achieved we will continue to work with the UK government and other stakeholders," he added.
It comes after SSE announced the immediate suspension of its cold-calling doorstep sales technique.
