Ed Miliband, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change said,
“Local solutions to the global problem of climate change are vital if we are to make the shift to a cleaner, greener future. LCWO is a great example: they’ve come to grips with the issue, developed local action plans, and then simply got stuck in and made things happen.
We want to see similar community projects across the country. Last week, the Government outlined what steps we will take to reduce emissions under our UK Low Carbon Transition Plan.
It’s heartening to see that groups such as LCWO, with its enthusiasm and initiative, are already leading the way. They may also benefit financially from the clean energy cashback schemes which will begin next year”.
