The campaign for
Warm Homes & Lower Bills
We are pleased to announce that energyshare has joined the Energy Bill Revolution alliance, calling for warm homes and lower bills.
The Energy Bill Revolution is calling on the Government to use the money it gets from carbon taxes to make our homes super-energy efficient. This is the only permanent way to drive down energy bills and end fuel poverty.
From next year the Government will be collecting over £2 billion in carbon tax every year, rising to £4 billion by 2020 and £7 billion by 2027. Recycled back into energy efficiency programmes, this would be enough to super-insulate more than 600,000 homes a year, bringing 9 out of 10 homes out of fuel poverty. It could also quadruple carbon emission savings from households compared to the government’s new energy efficiency policies and create up to 200,000 more jobs – exactly what we need to support the UK’s economic recovery.
“energyshare fully supports the aim of the Energy Bill Revolution to ensure the adoption of policy that allows for carbon taxes to be used to drive improvements in energy efficiency. Our key goal is to help people along their own personal energy journey by ‘making energy less boring’ and enabling them to engage with these important issues. We are proud to be part of a movement that brings together such a large number of organisations from different sectors who share our common goals of overcoming energy inertia and reducing both carbon emissions and fuel poverty.”Back
