Please take urgent action to support the future of community renewable energy.
On 1st July Parliament will discuss the Local Electricity Bill at a debate titled, ‘Enabling Community Energy’. The Bill, if enacted, would boost community renewable energy by empowering community energy schemes to sell their power directly to local people. This would cut greenhouse gas emissions and boost local economies simultaneously.
The debate is a great opportunity to urge the government to allow the Bill to become law, as the Energy Minister will be present.
Please help the campaign, being organised by Power for People, by asking your MP to attend the debate and speak in favour of the Bill. Go here to send your MP an email – this will only take a few minutes: https://powerforpeople.org.uk/backbench-business-debate.
If we all act together, we can persuade the government to ensure that the Bill becomes law. We will then be a big step closer to unlocking the huge potential for more clean community energy in our towns, cities and villages.
