|Our new polling, out yesterday, shows that people would want Great British Energy’s profits to be spent on cutting bills, investing in wind, water and solar power and insulating homes as the top three priorities.
In countries like Norway, Denmark, France and Austria they are already doing this! The city of Munich owns wind power on the coast of the UK and it uses the profits to invest in public transport and swimming pools!
If you enjoyed the discussion last night, or if you wish you’d been there – why not sign up to get notified about our weekly webinars? Every Thursday lunchtime from 12.30-1pm we gather online to share the latest campaign news and what we can do about it – whether on the NHS, buses, rail, water or energy.
You can eat your lunch, connect with likeminded people and take action for public ownership, all at the same time!
We’d love to see you this Thursday.
