The East Mendip Green Party (EMGP) have launched their ’Switch EDF off’ campaign which will pay people to switch from EDF to renewable energy suppliers. For the first time in the UK customers will get a cash payment to switch their energy accounts away from EDF and nuclear in favour of green energy. This campaign driven by the decision to go ahead with Hinkley by EDF and the Conservative government and is part of EMGP’s ongoing opposition to the Hinkley nuclear power plant and support for renewable energy. EMGP is concerned that in spite of current safety problems with the EPR design, security concerns over the Chinese partners, an ongoing EU subsidy court case, a decision has been made based on placatory politics rather than economic sense.
