Powersystems were invited to attend the houses of parliament this week with the Conservative Environment Network, Vattenfall and 10:10 Climate Action Group, to talk with MP’s and constituents about the cheapest source of electricity generation: onshore wind.
There is currently 5GW of onshore wind projects with planning consent ready to be built and the key message was that by excluding onshore windfarm from future Contracts for Difference auctions this pipeline is unlikely to be realised.
With Powersystems responsible for the electrical installation on over 25% of onshore wind farms in the UK we are a trusted supply partner and best placed to speak with MP’s about the important role wind generation plays in keeping the lights on, reducing bills and its significance in fighting climate change. The event was opened by Simon Clarke MP and other speakers included Luke Graham MP and Sam Richards of CEN.
A fantastic turnout of 40 MP’s showing there is a real interest in making a difference. Also a great opportunity for Powersystems to speak with likeminded people on the importance of onshore wind in the UK. We would like to thank our local MP Luke Hall for dropping in to lend his support.
Did you know that 66% of onshore wind investment stays in the UK economy – therefore supporting it could create 18,000 construction jobs and a further 8,500 long-term O&M jobs!
