Community-scale renewable energy offers huge potential to accelerate the low-carbon transition, but in the UK it is being blocked by wildly disproportionate costs and unfair regulations.
Power for People is campaigning for the Local Electricity Bill which, if made law, would empower community energy groups to start up and sell their clean electricity to local people.
More of the revenues kept locally would mean more investment in local services, more energy security, more local skilled jobs and a boost for clean energy generation across the UK.
Please support the Local Electricity Bill in order to deliver more clean, local energy that benefits local communities by:
- Publicly declaring support for the bill
- Informing the local media of this decision
- Writing to local MPs, asking them to support the Bill, and
- Writing to the organisers of the campaign for the Bill, Power for People, (at 8 Delancey Passage, Camden, London NW1 7NN or email@example.com) expressing your support.
