Some consumers may wish to switch gas suppliers after the Big Six energy firms were accused of breaking their vow to help vulnerable households who are struggling to pay their bills.
Caroline Flint, the shadow energy secretary, said the companies had failed to meet the demands of the Community Energy Saving Programme, the Independent reports.
Launched in 2009, the programme meant companies were legally obliged to provide energy efficiency measures at little or no cost to struggling households in deprived areas.
Ms Flint warned the government and Ofgem to not let the energy firms off the hook.
She said: "Energy companies are failing to keep their side of the deal and help families and pensioners make their homes warmer and more energy efficient."
Last week a survey by YouGov stated that 85 per cent of consumers think energy suppliers attempt to maximise profits at their expense.
