Demand a Public Energy Company for London!


The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has just published his four year vision for London, A City For All Londoners.

During his election campaign Sadiq pledged to set up London’s very own public energy company to give us clean, affordable energy. Now we need to keep the pressure up to make sure he delivers on his promise.

In A City For All Londoners Sadiq says he will:

explore the establishment of a not-for-profit energy company to supply cleaner energy in the city

This a start but we need a firmer commitment, the Mayor must pledge to deliver a public energy company in the next two years. This would put Londoners in control of their own energy, instead of the Big Six.

Sadiq is asking for feedback on his plan. But we only have until this Sunday to respond. You can leave a comment on the energy discussion page telling Sadiq you want a public energy company that delivers clean, affordable energy set up in the next two years. Just register first and then leave your comment.

“Londoners need clean, affordable energy that we get a genuine say in. The Mayor should set up a fully licensed, public energy supply company in his first two years in office. That could transform the energy market, breaking the stranglehold of the Big Six.”

“There are one million Londoners living in fuel poverty – changing light bulbs and turning off appliances is no longer enough. We need the Mayor to give us affordable and clean energy, a London public energy company could do that. That’s why I want Sadiq to proritise setting up a fully public company over the next two years.”

  • There is a need for a publicly owned energy company that operates for the benefit of the people it supplies. Let’s make this happen.

  • According to the GLA the already disgraceful figure of over 10% of Londoners are in fuel poverty jumps to 26% when you factor in our crippling housing costs. There needs to be a clean, affordable London energy company who’s profits go to London based programs to assist them to do more of their good work. These range from charities,community groups, energy co-ops and other registered social businesses but need help as funding from central government is being cut and energy prices are increasing & we are facing more climate chaos, deaths related to cold homes than ever and air pollution than ever before but it is still not too late to do something about it and a Energy For Londoners is a large part of the solution.
