Consumers are paying too much for their energy because of “excessive” green taxes added to bills, a damning Government-commissioned report has found.
A series of “spectacularly bad” decisions by ministers have “unnecessarily burdened” households and businesses with higher green energy subsidies than necessary, according to Prof Dieter Helm, of Oxford University.
Some of us have been saying this for some time now.
Even under Stern’s carbon tax it should have been about £30 billion tops. More than that is being charged – when we include, as we should the fuel duty escalator etc. Too much is being paid therefore.
That’s before we get into the nonsense manner in which they’ve actually done it.
