The government has recently granted permission for fracking to begin in Lancashire, overturning the decision of the local council, ignoring the objections of locals, and disregarding its own advice – that fracking will make climate change worse.
We don’t need to resort to fracking in Britain. We can generate enough gas to power around 97% of Britain’s homes in our Green Gasmills, using a resource that will never run out – grass.
Green Gasmills will cut carbon emissions, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, support local farmers, create wildlife habitats and improve the environment – they’re the antithesis to fracking.
We’ve launched our Campaign for Green Gas to show that there’s another way to generate the gas we need, and we don’t need to frack the countryside to get there – we just need to mow the grass.
We’ve recently been given permission to build our first Green Gasmill, and have several others in planning – including two at sites which are being considered for fracking.
We’ve also started a petition, calling on Theresa May to consider green gas as a genuine alternative to fracking.
And if you’re interested in switching to Ecotricity for frack-free green gas, there’s more information here.
