Ed Miliband, the Energy and Climate Change Secretary, said seven million homes will have insulation or renewable energy devices like solar panels fitted by 2020.
Energy companies will work with local authorities to carry out the ambitious refurbishment programme “street by street” and “house by house”.
Mr Miliband admitted households will pay around £50 per year to subsidise the nationwide scheme through fuel bills but insisted that this would be outweighed by savings in the long term.
But Peter Vicary-Smith, chief executive of Which?, said the Government are not in a position to guarantee bills will not go up even further.
