We’ve spent the last few months campaigning on our Final Demand campaign, getting signatures for our petition asking the government for a public inquiry into the power and influence of the Big Six energy companies.
The petition was very popular in Camden; we got hundreds of signatures at our stalls, and we had some great days campaigning including at the People’s Supermarket Global Farmers Market – our stall at the lovely event in Queen Square, Bloomsbury is pictured below.
The campaign has already scored a “win” as the Supreme Court ruled the Government illegally lowered incentives for solar energy by cutting the Feed-in-Tariff before its consultation had ended (Read more on this here). The support for the Final Demand petition makes it clear that people want more support for locally produced clean energy, and asks the government not to cut support for local renewable energy.
The petition for Final Demand was handed in last week to David Cameron at 10 Downing Street, with tens of thousands of signatures from people across the UK.
We’ll be launching the next stage of the campaign soon, on Clean British Energy with campaign stalls at various summer fairs locally. If you’d like to get involved and help our campaign to support locally produced, clean energy, please get in touch or check out our events calendar for upcoming campaign opportunities.
