The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Switch EDF Off

 http://www.ethicalconsumer.org/latestnews/entryid/2142/switch-edf-off.aspx10/03/2017 10:36  Anti-nuclear campaigner Nikki Clark explains how you can oppose the planned EDF nuclear power station in Somerset

East Mendip Green Party in Somerset have launched Switch Off EDF, a consumer boycott campaign against the energy firm EDF which plans to build a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset.

The campaign organisers estimate that for every thousand customers who switch away from EDF, its profits will be shaved by about a million pounds.

To further lubricate the wheels of change, every customer who switches away from EDF, or any other nuclear supplier, to either of the green energy companies Ecotricity or Good Energy will receive, from the East Mendip Green Party, £20 for a single-fuel switch or £40 for a dual-fuel switch.

This is the money that these two energy providers normally pay to the Green Party for new customers who quote the Green Party when signing up.

Many switch campaigns challenging the dominance of the Big Six energy firms in the electricity and heating markets focus on getting the cheapest deals, and whilst what we pay for our energy is an important issue, it’s not the only issue that we should be concerned with.

As a consumer I want to know that the energy I buy is as clean as possible and that the people who work for the companies I buy from are paid fairly and treated well.
