The natural gas plan of Liz Truss, who was elected the new Prime Minister of England with the majority of the conservative votes, was announced.
In his victory speech after being elected Prime Minister, Truss’s natural gas plan, which underlined that he would bring solutions to energy and national health care, became official.
According to the news in the British newspaper The Telegraph, the new prime minister has introduced a new ‘Energy Price Guarantee’ that will save a typical household £1000 a year.
Truss said in the House of Commons that ‘freezing the energy bill’ would mean that a typical household would not pay more than £2,500 a year.
British media reports recently claimed that the new administration had prepared a draft plan to keep annual electricity and gas bills at or below £711 for an ordinary household.
According to documents seen by Bloomberg News, Truss’ draft plan envisions spending £130 billion over the next 18 months to keep energy bills stable.
However, in Truss’ statement today, there was no information about the cost of this project to the government.
