Local power for a fair price

A message from the 10:10 campaigners...

.

Imagine if we could all buy clean power direct from a local energy co-op, for a price that matched our budget.
.
In some countries this is totally normal. In Britain, it's banned. Let's fix that!

We're asking the next climate minister to bring in a right to supply for community energy groups.

OVESCO offers mentoring service for energy groups in the South East
  OVESCO is expanding their community energy mentoring service, thanks to funding given to Co-operatives UK by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. We want to more groups to follow in our footsteps and develop their own local renewable energy projects.

.

We want to hear from Transition Groups, Green Campaign Groups and communities who want to generate their own renewable power in the South East. HKD Energy is one of the groups OVESCO recently supported with training and they launched their first share issue in November for £150,000 to install PV on the roof of Dowlands School’s and your community could do the same! Eligible community energy groups accepted onto the programme can access up to 6 days of support from the Peer Mentors. It is perceived that mentoring activities will be undertaken using a range of interventions to include face to face meetings (one to one or group), telephone discussions and email exchanges. Full details will be provided when you apply for support, and you will be matched with the mentor who meets your needs in terms of project type and location. You could be generating your own community power in 2015!
