The Local Electricity Bill

The Bill, if made law, would empower local communities to sell locally generated clean energy directly to local customers by establishing a statutory Right to Local Supply. This is currently impossible because of the huge setup and running costs involved in doing so.
The ultimate result 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 supply companies would generate, such as more local skilled jobs, energy efficiency schemes and investment in local facilities
