Cap Energy Bills

Cap Energy Bills

Cap energy bills this winter

Why is this important?

From being forced to live in cold damp houses, to small businesses closing early because they can’t pay the electricity bill, the wall of hardship is only getting higher.

This government knew for a long time that there wouldn’t be enough energy for us all and decided to prioritise energy-guzzling data centres over ordinary people.

The government's own report on the energy security review this week showed clearly that soon data centres will be consuming up to 30% of our energy.

We have to make sure this government understands that their priority must be to protect people and make sure we all get through this winter without freezing or being forced to make impossible choices.

Our community wants to see caps on household, community services and small business energy bills as a priority in this budget.
