Lily Allen backs renewable energy generation

Between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with Uswitch saved £479 or more.

Lily Allen has lent her support to a campaign calling for incentives to be introduced that will encourage homes and businesses to generate their own electricity.

The singer and TV presenter has backed the Friends of the Earth and Renewable Energy Association initiative for changes to be made to the energy bill, which will support those who use technology like solar panels and wind turbines.

According to Ms Allen, the pop star said her experiences at an environmentally friendly studio showed her the benefits of green electricity.

She explained: "Having worked at The Premises solar powered recording studio I have experienced how clean and green renewable energy is.

"I fully support giving people a renewable energy reward for the power they generate. It's good to be green."

The singer's support for the green energy campaign has come after the government urged business electricity customers to apply for grants to install combined heat and power systems.

Climate change minister Phil Woolas announced details of the £4 million fund at the start of this month.
