• "TURN IT OFF" - TURN OFF LIGHTING IN UNOCCUPIED OFFICES
    A massive amount of energy is wasted because companies leave their office lighting on at night when they are not in use. Additionally there is unnecessary light pollution over most cities. This saving and adjustment can be done literally through the "touch of a switch".

  • Abolish Gas and Electric Daily Standing Charge
    All the energy providers charge for a daily standing charge (DSC) for the provision of Gas and Electric supplies. The DSC varies between energy providers and also which of their tariffs. This year the DSC appears to be in excess of 20p per day for either gas or electric. You could, therefore, be paying over £146 per year to energy providers in addition to the cost of your gas and electric. In this day and age, I cannot see any reason as to why a DSC should be levied, as it seems to go back to the days before consumers were given the choice of energy provider. I also believe that the DSC is also one way that the energy providers can increase tariff prices and gain extra revenue,yet state they have cheaper energy tariffs. This DSC should be abolished.

  • Overcharging
    At a time when wages are not keeping up with rising prices, many are struggling to survive financially each month, food, fuel and other essentials are costing more each week(whatever politicians tell us -I bet not many of them do the food shopping!!) to have this extra money in our pockets and not in the grasping electricity company coffers is essential. Lets raise the issue loudly to them to clean up their act.

  • Airfare tax should subsidise Solar Panels.
    From 20th October 2019 VAT on solar panels will increase from 5% to 20%. Despite declaring a climate emergency, the government has cancelled payments for electricity uploaded to the grid by micro producers.These changes make solar panels uneconomical to install. The VAT on fossil fuels including coal & gas will remain at 5%. At present airfare carbon taxes are not used specifically to promote and develop renewable energy.

  • Rationalise Electric Vehicle Charging Payments
    Range anxiety is a very real concern to motorists tempted to make the switch away from dirty fossil fuel powered vehicles. At the moment there is a huge variety of ways to access public charging points but most of them require separate apps or membership or separate cards. I want to be able to access any charging pod and use my existing credit or debit card to make the payment, exactly as I would if I visited a petrol station. If the government wish to meet their obligations under the climate change agreements they have signed, this would be a simple piece of legislation to encourage the changeover to electric vehicles.

  • Halt the solar and storage VAT hike
    This hike is certain to hit innovation and investment in the UK’s growing solar and battery storage market. Not to mention the vital progress on decarbonising heat, which according to the Spring Statement is a strong focus for this government. There could not be a more contradictory step following the declaration of a climate emergency by parliament.

  • Cost of LPG bottle gas
    All residents in mobile park homes, caravan and motorhome owners and people living in rural areas have to pay inflated prices for the supply of these gas bottled. During winter months, this cost puts a huge financial strain on all residents in residential park retirement homes (mostly retired )and users. The cost of electricity is regulated but not bottled gas, so its time this was regulated as well. If it can be done in Spain then why not here.

  • Stop Public Funding for New Non-renewable Energy Projects
    Man-made climate change is scientific fact [1]. It is a national security problem unprecedented in scale that requires radical action. Without action we will see severe environmental and social damage like drought, famine and mass displacement of people within our lifetime. We want change. Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) are contracts where government pledges public money to private investment plans, reducing the financial burden on the private company and attracting investors to the UK. With the recent collapse of public-private nuclear energy deals at Wylfa and Moorside, we the undersigned ask the government to reconsider its energy policy. Passing legislation prohibiting the government from investing in the construction of new fossil fuel and nuclear energy infrastructure projects will help phase out these environmentally damaging technologies [2]. The future of energy is carbon neutral and renewable and it's time government policy reflected this. Renewables have the potential to meet our energy needs [3], but the sector lacks the public investment that the fossil fuel industry enjoys [4]. Legislation of this kind would encourage governments to make this investment available.

  • Use less harmful fuels in Formula One cars
    Around 151,200 liters of fuel is used every year from Formula one cars. This is a ridiculous amount of CO2 released into the air. We need to have much less carbon dioxide so we try to fight the ever growing issue of global warming.

  • Pull pension funds from fossil fuels
    If it is wrong to wreck the climate, then it is wrong to profit from that wreckage. We believe that governments that serve the public good should cut their ties to the fossil fuel industry. MPs must show leadership on climate change by responsible investment and transition to a clean economy. Find out more here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5T-YhjpNnE#action=share

  • Divest Parliament from Fossil Fuels
    There is currently a campaign asking MPs to pledge to support the divestment of Parliament from fossil fuels.This has already happened in the Irish Parliament and has had a massive effect in changing public opinion and making them aware of the devastating effect that the fossil fuel industry has on the environment. If only 20% of the proven fossil fuel reserves are burned, we will not be able to keep within the UN's target of 1.5 degree temperature rise, and any more than this will cause catastrophic and irreversible climate change. This makes the drive towards fracking utterly non-sensical, as fracking is part of the problem and not part of the solution. Divestment from fossil fuels is an essential component of limiting climate change, because we cannot afford to be investing in such a damaging industry. Just 100 companies, many of which are fossil fuel companies, contribute 71% of carbon emissions worldwide. I am asking you please to sign the parliamentary pledge at the earliest opportunity. It will send an important message to other MPs if you do so. If you are not prepared to sign it, I would like to know the reasons why you do not share the view that this is an essential step in the process towards limiting climate change.
