British homeowners could be benefitting from eco-friendly green energy within a few years should the Conservative Party win the upcoming general election, it has been claimed.
With all the main political parties attempting to promote themselves as the most environmentally-conscious as the country gets set to go to the polls, the Daily Telegraph has reported that the Tories will make boosting the UK's green energy capabilities a top priority.
Specifically, the paper's veteran environmental correspondent Geoffrey Lean has cited members of the shadow cabinet in claiming that a new energy bill could be included in the first Queen's Speech of a Tory government, to be delivered within a month of the election result being announced.
In addition to reforming the existing Climate Change Levy and establishing a base price for carbon emissions, such a bill would also enable UK households to benefit from grants worth up to £6,400 to carry out energy-efficient improvement projects and thereby enjoy cheap energy in the future.
However, Mr Lean has also suggested that comparing energy suppliers and switching if necessary could be just as important in the future should the Tories win the election and fail to follow through with their green pledges.
At the same time, the Scottish Liberal Democrats have pledged to do more to ensure that the country becomes a world leader in renewable energy over the coming years.
