20-20-20 for the Local Electricity Bill!
Could you contact 20 MPs today, Thursday 20 May to be part of this exciting campaign?
Green Christian has supported Power for People’s campaign for the Local Electricity Bill since the start! The campaign has just made the big decision to try to have the Bill taken up by one of the 20 MPs drawn in the Parliamentary Private Members’ Ballot on 20 May.
The Bill has broad cross-party support from 260 MPs, so, with your help and prayers, this really might work!
What to do
On Thursday next week, please write to the 20 MPs drawn in the Ballot on 20 May, asking them to adopt the Bill. As you can see in the video above this is all pretty-much done for you if you go to their webpage which will IS NOW LIVE! This is a bit of an exception obviously as most people who write won’t be constituents, but it’s vital in order to show the MPs the nationwide grass-roots support that the Bill has.
Green Christian has also written a letter which will be sent to all 20 MPs on Thursday asking the same thing.
For inspiration, do watch this video about how communities are backing the Local Electricity Bill – featuring our own Vice Chair, Barbara Echlin!

Baildon Methodist Church is, as I type, giving, free, considerable amounts of surplus electricity from its 8 kW peak PV array to the anonymous grid. We have failed to get payment for this. This is not a viable proposition for future installations. I wish to take part in the proposed lobbying of MPs about the local electricity bill
Local action on climate change is very important if we are to reduce emissions in all areas.
