Many of you will know that I launched At Cost Energy but due to ill health I was not able to continue with the venture. At Cost Energy was about selling energy at the price it is bought from suppliers, plus a very small overhead to cover the costs of running the business.
At Cost Energy was set up as I believe gas and electricity are a necessity to live, not a luxury! I challenge why ANY company should be allowed to profit from something that in my opinion, is a basic human right. As the name suggests we were to offer gas and electricity AT COST, no hidden extras, no flashy London offices, no pretty water feature in reception, no shareholders, no director bonuses, just the same gas and electricity you use currently, but AT COST!
I hoped At Cost Energy would allow me to fulfil my passion to help people, starting initially with energy, with the view of reducing fuel poverty in the UK.
My belief that energy is a basic human right has NOT changed, however what has changed is my ability to change the industry on my own. I have always maintained that public pressure will bring about the change necessary to reduce energy costs, not me.
So..do you really care about the rising cost of energy? I mean, really care? At what point will YOU actually do something about it?
If you feel strongly about the cost of energy, then quite simply…do something about it! Petition the people in your street and collect their signatures, involve your MP, involve your local newspaper and radio station…just ring them tell them what you’re doing and why. All we need is ONE motivated person in each street in the UK, and before you know it we’ll have one of the largest petitions the country has ever seen.
Go on, what are you waiting for? If enough people get involved, I pledge to pick up the gauntlet once more.
