End the Big 6 Energy Fix

Since launching the ‘End the Big Six Energy Fix’ campaign on Friday over 5000 have signed our petition – this is a fantastic start. On its front page on Saturday The Independent revealed that the big six energy firms are due to make a £15bn windfall. As someone who hasn’t yet signed we need your help in turning up the heat on the big six energy companies.

Today the true cost of energy profiteering really hit home, when it was revealed that deaths from hypothermia have doubled in the last five years.

And whilst millions of Britons struggle to make ends meet with 5.5M households in fuel poverty, the big six energy companies are struggling with a very different dilemma – what to do with all their windfall profits. Sound like a fair deal to you?

This is exactly why we want the Government to impose a levy on the big six energy companies to help insulate people’s homes and make their gas and electric bills more affordable. They’ve already imposed a levy on the North Sea oil companies – so why not the energy companies too?

We want to get to over 10,000 signatures by the end of this week, so that in the run-up to the Budget in March we can pile on the pressure for the Government to take action.

So sign the petition now and then share on Facebook, Twitter and email everyone you know: http://www.endthebigsixenergyfix.org.uk

Let’s work together to End the Big Six Energy Fix and try to ensure that next winter nobody has to be left in the cold.
