How to get your MP to back wind

Onshore wind is cheap, popular, and a vital part of tackling climate change. But a group of MPs have been campaigning against it - and they’ve persuaded the government to block new wind projects from even getting started.

To bring back onshore wind, we need to show the government that most MPs agree with the British public - they want to see more wind power in the UK. So we’re launching a public letter from MPs to the prime minister - asking her to remove the blocks that have been standing in the way of wind power.

We’ve got dozens of MPs signed up already. But to show the government that wind supporters are the majority, we need hundreds more to join them.

Want to get involved? There are four simple steps

  1. Email your MP and ask them to sign the letter.

  2. Get family and friends in your constituency to write to your MP too. The more emails your MP receives, the more likely they are to listen.

  3. If your MP doesn’t sign up straight-away, the next step is to ask for a meeting so you can talk to them about the letter in person. Have a look at the top tips below, or get in touch if you’d like our support setting up the meeting - contact Hannah.

  4. Link up with other wind fans in your constituency to amplify your voices. Get in touch with Hannah to find out more.
