Waveney MP Peter Aldous has backed the first ever mass switch to clean energy.

The Clean Energy Switch campaign will use the bargaining power of tens of thousands of people to cut the cost of renewable energy making it affordable for ordinary families.

In the first week of the campaign 50,000 households have signed up – and now Mr Aldous has urged people in Waveney to sign up and add their weight to the campaign.

He said: “The renewable energy industry has a big role to play in the future of Waveney and so I fully support this initiative which seeks to strengthen it. Waveney could benefit from increased jobs, lower energy bills, and a lower carbon footprint.”

It works by people signing up for free at the 38 Degrees website or at entering just an email address and postcode to express an interest. There are zero obligations. Signing up does not mean you have to take the deal. Using the collective bargaining power, a green energy deal is negotiated via a reverse auction with green energy suppliers. The winning tariff is announced, delivering the cheapest genuinely green energy tariff on the market.
