Energy prices: One million households face £500 higher energy bills due to Tories axing green home rules

The i says More than a million households are set to pay up to £470 a year more in energy bills due to a 2015 Conservative decision to scrap green home rules, research suggests.

The “short-sighted” decision seven years ago to build new homes to a lower standard of energy efficiency means millions of people are facing higher bills amid the energy crisis, according to the Liberal Democrats.

The Zero Carbon Homes standards were set to come into force in 2016. They aimed to make all new UK homes carbon neutral by requiring developers to build highly efficient structures, while properties would also have to generate clean energy, for example via rooftop solar panels.
