Mayor launches own energy provider

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has launched a socially-orientated green energy company for Londoners. London Power promises to deliver fair energy pricing, with electricity generated from 100 per cent renewable sources and profits reinvested into London’s communities.

The initiative, in partnership with Octopus Energy, forms part of the strategy to take London to being a zero-carbon city, and is priced to persuade Londoners, the most reluctant UK switchers, to move to a more environmentally sound provider. Any profits that City Hall makes will be reinvested into community projects helping Londoners living in fuel poverty and working to tackle the climate.

The partnership is part of the Mayor’s Energy for Londoners programme, which ‘aims to make London’s homes warm, healthy and affordable, its workplaces more energy efficient, and to supply the capital with more local clean energy’.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “It is a disgrace that many Londoners pay too much to heat and light their homes, with more than a million living in fuel poverty. That’s why I’ve launched London Power – to give all Londoners access to a better, fairer deal safe in the knowledge that they won’t be automatically switched to a rip-off tariff when their contract ends.”

Octopus Energy is also behind the Co-op Energy scheme that allows homes across the UJK to use community wind and solar farms from anywhere in the country through an energy tariff that offers clean electricity exclusively from such community projects.
