|The Co-operative is campaigning for a Clean Energy Revolution with communities at its heart. We want to see a dramatic increase in the number of communities democratically controlling and benefiting from their own renewable energy projects, as is common elsewhere in Europe.
These projects will help reduce our reliance on increasingly expensive and dirty fossil fuels. Whats more, they keep the profits generated within the community and increase local support for vital renewable energy schemes (research shows that two out of three people who oppose wind turbines change their minds if they belong to the community!).
However, more Government support is needed to empower communities ask your MP to support a Clean Energy Revolution in the UK.
