People looking to make an energy comparison to find cheap electricity deals from green sources may be interested to hear the government has asserted its commitment to developing renewable technologies.
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) unveiled proposals to encourage green electricity schemes, which includes offering extra support for offshore wind generation projects.
Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg said: "Supporting clean, green, secure energy is the right thing to do for both the environment and the economy."
He added the announcement demonstrates the government will be making a long-term commitment in the UK's renewable industry.
Secretary of state for energy and climate change Chris Huhne added the proposals published today (October 20th) would help the country meet 70 per cent of its green targets for 2020.
Earlier this month, the DECC established a task force to investigate how best to reduce the cost of developing new offshore wind farms.
