A consumer group has called on the government to clarify how much people will be paying for long-term carbon reduction targets, energy comparison users might be interested to learn.
Which? has asked energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne to confirm how much cheap energy users can expect to have added to their domestic energy bills.
Richard Lloyd, executive director of the group, commented: "Consumers need a guarantee that the government is not writing a blank cheque on their behalf to reduce carbon emissions.
"Despite the fact that consumers will ultimately foot the bill, we're still in the dark about the impact of new targets for carbon emissions on our energy bills."
Mr Lloyd pointed out that energy prices are almost double what they were in 2004 and many consumers are already struggling to keep up with the rising cost of living.
He added that the government has to be honest about what the carbon reduction changes will mean to householders and to ensure energy efficiency schemes make a difference to energy bills.
