Make big energy companies pay the climate levy!
The big energy companies are boasting record profits. The working people in the UK are being hit with huge energy price-hikes. The solution to this is simple and direct. Instead of raising a windfall tax on these companies; stop the climate levy on household bills and make the energy companies pay for renewable energy construction directly. Win, win.
Why is this important?
This is important because the cost of fuel needs addressing urgently. This situation will only worsen if we don't act now. Millions of working households are facing food and fuel poverty and making the big energy companies pay the green levy directly will have an immediate positive effect on these households without damaging the renewable sector.
