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.'
