Half of all UK households could face fuel poverty this winter due to the rapidly rising costs of energy bills.
The community energy sector has such potential to make a big contribution to relieve this mounting pressure. But regulatory barriers stand in the way. Now more than ever, we need to enable community energy groups to sell their clean power to local households so that money we pay for our energy is redirected into local communities.
Last week we organised the introduction of a legislative amendment that would do this to the Government’s Energy Bill, currently proceeding through Parliament. The amendment is soon to be debated and voted on in the House of Lords.
Whether or not we win this vote, we will need to encourage MPs and the Government to back what we are calling for when the Energy Bill comes to the House of Commons. Are you wondering how you can help?
On Thursday 15th September, we will be hosting our first ‘drop in’ Q&A session with our team of expert campaigners.
Drop in anytime between 5:30pm and 6:30pm to have your questions about the campaign answered.
Whether you want an update on campaign progress, or you are not sure what to ask of your MP – no question is too small.
To join us, click this link on 15th September at 5.30pm (no registration required).
These informal Q&As will take place every other month.
Remember: we are still here to answer your questions in-between Q&As, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
