LETTER: Control our own energy services

It’s time to take back our domestic energy system; gas, electricity and water. These are universal services which provide all natural needs to everyone, but thanks to the Tory government they are the control of a tiny clique of profiteers.

File photo dated 22/04/12 of money with energy bills as Government policies such as helping insulate homes and promoting the installation of more energy efficient boilers are helping reduce the rise in household gas and electricity bills, according to a report. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Wednesday March 27, 2013. Savings generated from energy efficiency policies are already having an impact and will increase over the next decade, a report from the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has said. Household dual fuel bills are estimated to be on average 5%, or £64 lower now than they would be without these policies, according to the report. See PA story CONSUMER Energy.

So re-nationalise me thinks, so we can control our own.
