COMMUNITY ENERGY SCHEME – HAVE YOUR SAY!
From Croydon North MP Steve Reed:
I have long campaigned for Croydon to have its own community energy co-op. I helped set up a similar scheme in Brixton and have introduced Repowering London, the organisation that grew out of that initiative, to Croydon Council.
A community energy co-op would work with Croydon residents to run renewable energy projects that generate electricity sustainably and create local jobs with any profits being ploughed back into the community.
Similar schemes have already proved extremely popular in Brixton, Hackney, Plymouth and many other parts of the country.
If you’d like to find out more about how community energy could work in Croydon, please attend one of Repowering London’s events:
Thursday 7 December, 2-8pm – South Norwood Leisure Centre 164 Portland Rd, London SE25 4PT
Friday 8 December, 2-8pm – Thornton Heath Leisure Centre 100 High St, Thornton Heath CR7 8LF
