Many people never turn on the central heating now, however cold the winter's day.
Privatised power electric and gas companies, according to the regulator Ofgem, are making 10 per cent profit, which means profits have doubled in the past year.
Ofgem informs that energy companies' profits are rising because the price of wholesale gas has fallen 35 per cent and are at their lowest since 2010.
The wholesale gas price makes up half of an energy bill.
The increase in profit margins was a serious concern of the Chairman of the Fuel Poverty Advisory Group to government.
Some power companies never passed on the savings, when the government slashed the cost of green tax levies in December 2013.
HOW NATIONALISED UTILITIES COULD HAVE MADE FUEL POVERTY HISTORY?
HERE IS THE MOST RECENT OFF THE PEG TECHNOLOGY IDEA IN SELF-SUFFICIENT POWER GENERATION
Further ideas to harness the sun's power on roadways to power the street lights, is being researched in American universities.
There are lots of off the peg technologies that could make roads, homes, schools, hospitals, commercial and government buildings and towns self-sufficient in electricity generation.
HOW BUILDINGS CAN BECOME SELF-GENERATING IN ELECTRICITY?
The building sector is said to need about 40 per cent of world's energy.
Refitting current buildings, not just new buildings, could make buildings generate more power than they use.
The sewerage that comes from buildings can be used to generate electricity to make sewerage treatment works not only self-sufficient in power, but also generate power onto the National Grid.
An American university is researching using a natural bug to not only process sewerage but to bring back polluted rivers and lakes from farm pollution into life. And to generate electricity to power the treatment works and power the National Grid.
