Support the Local Electricity Bill

The UK is not meeting its climate change targets. Our recovery from COVID-19 must also accelerate the low-carbon transition to prevent dangerous levels of warming by the end of the century1.

The Local Electricity Bill can play a key role. If made law, it would unleash the huge potential for more small-scale renewable energy generation by empowering community energy groups to sell their clean energy directly to local people. This would strengthen local economies and tackle climate change simultaneously.


To The Minister of State for Business, Energy and Clean Growth, 

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.
