Local Electricity Bill
Power for People are asking support for the Local Electricity Bill. 124 Local Councils have already done this.
The benefits of this would be:
1. Local communities and businesses could buy their electricity from a local energy company.
2. Building more local renewable energy would be financially viable.
3. Communities would benefit from the revenues that new local energy companies would generate, such as more local skilled jobs, energy efficiency schemes and investment in local facilities.
Power for People, drafted the Bill and is co-ordinating the campaign for it to become law. For more detailed information on the Bill and the campaign visit www.powerforpeople.org.uk
