Bosses at some of the UK's biggest energy suppliers have seen their pay packages double over the last ten years as their companies make record profits.
At the same time, household gas and electricity prices have also doubled, which the Daily Mirror noted has left many people struggling to meet their bills.
The publication stated the average salary and benefits for bosses at the Big Six energy firms stood at £1.35 million in 2010, compared with £637,000 ten years earlier.
Spokeswoman for the National Pensioners' Convention Dot Gibson said: "There is no justification for their whopping pay packets when their price rises mean many can't even afford to heat their homes."
Energy campaigner at Greenpeace Lawrence Carter called on energy secretary Edward Davey to step in and demand the bosses hand their bonuses back.
Last week, EDF announced it made £1.6 billion profit in 2011, while SSE has also indicated it will see an increase.
