A new survey reveals that most consumers want energy suppliers to be more transparent about the prices they charge for utilities.
A poll from consumer group Which? found that 90 per cent of people would like energy suppliers to provide more information about how they calculate energy bills, reports the Press Association.
More than eight in ten (83 per cent) respondents said they would also like an industry-wide base rate for energy prices to allow them to compare energy tariffs more easily and see whether or not they are getting a good deal.
Which? chief executive Peter Vicary-Smith told the news agency: "Energy suppliers are always quick to blame wholesale prices for rising bills, but it's all but impossible for an ordinary consumer to find out if such claims are true."
The group called on industry regulator Ofgem to scrutinise energy suppliers that pass on the costs of generating power to individual customers.
New regulations came into force this month aimed at making energy suppliers include greater detail in the bills they produce for customers.
