A Roscommon TD is calling on Government to follow other EU countries by putting a cap on energy bills.
Claire Kerrane feels proposed credits won't give householders the certainty they need coming into the winter.
She says the European Commission has already given approval to cap soaring electricity costs and the coalition must now look into this as well as introducing a windfall tax on energy companies.
The Sinn Fein TD will take part in a cost of living march tomorrow in Dublin which is being organised by 30 organisations, including Opposition political parties and trade unions.
It's expected thousands will gather to call on the Government to urgently act on surging costs.
Speaking on the Joe Finnegan Show Deputy Kerrane stated householders across the region are worried.
"We think we need to give households certainty. They're not going to get certainty with an electricity credit that will be paid to everyone including holiday homes. They're going to get it by having a cap, having it in place until February at least, and ensuring costs go back to summer 2021 levels. That's the only way we're going to give people certainty.
