Call for greater support for Community Energy
The Co-op have set up a website to make it easy for you to contact your MP, asking them to show their support for Community Energy.
“The UK can no longer afford to rely on increasingly expensive and environmentally damaging fossil fuels. Instead we need to accelerate the development of a clean energy future. To help achieve this we are campaigning for a dramatic increase in the number of communities democratically owning, controlling and benefiting from their own renewable energy projects.
Please contact your MP to ask that they:
- support amendments to the Energy Bill
- sign Early Day Motion 684 (Community Energy)
- raise the issue with Ministers
We would like the Government to:
- recognise the significant potential and benefits of community energy
- introduce a comprehensive framework of support
You can follow the progress of the EDM and whether your MP has signed.“
