Tower Hamlets launches energy co-operative

June 2012: Tower Hamlets council has announced that it has established Tower Hamlets Energy  – “a large scale domestic power purchasing co-operative, which comes at a time when residents are facing huge increases in the cost of living.” The news release continues “Once the co-op is established it will provide additional benefits to members, including free and impartial advice on grants, insulation, fuel debt, and energy efficiency to help residents keep their bills down.

It will also offer access to energy efficiency resources and household renovation schemes. These plans go hand in hand with the council’s Decent Homes programme which will see all of the borough’s council homes improved to become more energy efficient and include modern kitchens and bathrooms by 2015.
The scheme is free to join, and residents will only be encouraged to switch suppliers if it offers a cheaper deal.”
