Write a letter to your MP now to support wind

Six years ago, 100 MPs wrote a letter to the then prime minister David Cameron protesting the spread of onshore wind - and now it’s banned. So we decided to ask the constituents of these MPs what they thought about onshore wind. And guess what? A whopping 74% of people living in the MPs’ constituencies support onshore wind.

We’ve collected a list of all the MPs who signed that letter opposing onshore wind. If your MP is on our list, write them an email using our two easy steps.

  1. Check our list - is your MP on it? We’ve listed them with their constituency name in alphabetical order. If you don’t know who your MP is, use this website to find them using your postcode.

  2. Write to them. Tell them why you support onshore wind and they should too. Use our email writing tips as a starting point - but make it personal to you. Make sure you include your address so they know you’re a constituent.

If your MP isn’t on our list, will you share the news that wind is popular and MPs are out of touch? The more people that know, the more who can hold MPs to account.

Email writing tips

  • Remind your MP they signed a letter in 2012 that called for cuts to government support for onshore wind - and that, as a result, onshore wind has been blocked since 2015.

  • Let them know about our new polling, which was conducted across the 79 constituencies of the MPs who signed the letter - including your constituency. You could mention that 74% of respondents said they support onshore wind, and 73% would be happy to have wind turbines within five miles of their home.

  • Tell them why you’re one of the 74% of people living in your constituency who supports onshore wind.  

  • Remind them that over the three years onshore wind has been blocked, it has become the cheapest source of new-build energy - and is now cheaper than new gas, nuclear and coal.

  • Ask them to write to Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), urging him to undo the blocks so that new onshore wind can be built across the UK.

  • If you want to send them some extra information on public support for onshore wind, you can direct them to our new briefing.
