The Importance of Locally Generated Energy


The Importance of Locally Generated Energy

Everyone is familiar with the concept of buying local and we understand the benefit of getting our food from nearby suppliers and growers and using local contractors. However, it hasn’t always been clear why choosing local is best when it comes to choosing an energy supplier.

Simply put, there are many reasons to choose local energy and if your someone who wants to support the creation of a more sustainable future, then locally sourced is part of the solution.

That being said there are many reasons why you should choose locally generated energy:

ENERGY SECURITY

With our uncertain future when facing Brexit, being able to rely on businesses and service providers within the UK helps give us more stability as a country. As buying in energy from other countries can be expensive due to fluctuations in economies, exchange rates and even world relations.
Local, renewable energy generated in the UK, protects and future proofs our energy needs as a country.

BUILDS INFRASTRUCTURE AND INCREASES OUTPUT

In the case of renewable electricity, increased investment in local areas means that it’s likely that there will be more development for increased capacity – i.e. through energy storage. This has a knock-on effect, increasing the renewable generation capacity within the UK as a whole.

This also has a cumulative effect — if each community project or business were to increase their generation infrastructure to reach even just a five percent increase in annual output, the impact on the total renewable mix of the UK would be huge.

Increased infrastructure and capacity is also going to be increasingly important as we see the rapid growth of electric vehicles.

MORE JOBS

Investing in local communities and businesses, whether it’s for renewable generation or not, means that they’ll have more opportunity to grow and expand. This creates more jobs, more opportunities and encourages greater development within the local community.

Overall this can lead to much larger changes on a national or international level, and increase opportunities for social mobility.

FAIR COSTS

As we all know cheaper isn’t always better, so by choosing local and deciding to pay a fair price for the product that you’re receiving, you’re making a statement. You’re saying that you care about how your electricity is generated and where your electricity comes from.
