Press enquiries contact Emma Hughes, 07801140192

Today marks one year since London elected Sadiq Khan as its Mayor; in that year Khan has failed to deliver on his manifesto promise to set up Energy for Londoners (EfL) a not-for-profit public energy company to deliver affordable, clean energy for the capital.

Taking its cue from Robin Hood Energy in Nottingham Energy for Londoners could transform the London energy market, tackle fuel poverty and reinvesting profits in green energy projects.

However, Londoners have yet to see any progress. Sadiq Khan promised to publish a detailed plan on Energy for Londoners in April but this has not happened. Is affordable, green energy slipping down the Mayor’s agenda? With 12-15% of Londoners experiencing fuel poverty there is an urgent need for Sadiq Khan keep the promise he made in his manifesto and set up Energy for Londoners.

Switched on London urge Sadiq Khan to make good on his promise to make London a world leader in clean energy provision by setting up Energy for Londoners.

 

NOTES:

Switched On (http://switchedonlondon.org.uk/) is a movement calling for publicly controlled energy that is green, affordable and controlled by us. From Nottingham to Bristol, cities across Britain are leaving the Big Six behind by setting up their own, non-profit energy companies that cuts bills and polluting carbon emissions. We need non-profit companies with social justice, clean energy and democracy at their core.
