It is good to see that some politicians are taking the issue of renewable energy seriously. David Cameron and some other members of his shadow cabinet took a “lunchtime challenge” to switch their household electricity supplies to renewable providers online. In just over 4 minutes the switch was made to a company sourcing its power from a wind-farm. This “challenge” was used as a way to demonstrate how easy it can be to support the prevention of climate change.
This switch over will soon see the modern Conservative HQ office block on Victoria Street, Westminster become entirely carbon neutral, demonstrating that it may not just be a gimmick. However, gimmick or not it still gives much needed publicity to the potential that is out there for alternative power sources.
Why don’t you give it a go?
