A bevy of figures has been announced this morning as the energy firms respond to the government's pledge to cut green levies, in a bid to ease the impact of energy bill hikes.
The move comes as part of a package of measures announced over the weekend. It also follows the coalition denial that it had approached energy firms asking them to freeze bills until the 2015 election.

- Today: said it's cutting the average dual fuel bill by £53 - £41 off the average annual duel fuel bill, plus a £12 customer rebate for the government's Warm Home Discount scheme. Will take effect from 1 January.
- Announced an 8.2 per cent price rise which took effect on 15 November.
- Today: said it's cutting the typical duel fuel bill by around £50. Will take effect from April.

- Today: said it won't be raising prices over the next 18 months unless wholesale costs go up.
EDF and Npower are still number-crunching:
