Energy we can all afford?

This winter millions of people across the UK will struggle to pay their gas and electricity bills. Cold homes are bad for our health, especially for children and older people. Yet energy prices continue to go up – mostly due to the rising price of gas.

We need new ways to use, produce and above all save energy – and this means we need a change in the law. Now is the time to discuss this, as Parliament is about to debate these critical issues.

We need the Government to use the money from carbon taxes to make our homes super-energy efficient. This is the ONLY permanent solution to end fuel poverty and drive down energy bills. It is also the BEST way to boost the economy and create up to 200,000 jobs.

Governments and scientists agree that our climate is changing, and that the extreme weather and storms we see are the first signs of this change. Pollution from energy use is the most likely cause of this problem. Saving energy and using cleaner energy can help solve it.

A number of local meetings are being organised up and down the country to debate the current energy crisis. To see the full details of each event please refer to our Events Diary.
