Hyslop Welcomes Publicly Owned Energy Company Announcement

Local Constituency MSP, Fiona Hyslop has welcomed the announcement made by the First Minister that the Scottish Government will establish a publicly-owned, not-for-profit energy company to deliver low-cost renewable energy by the end of this parliamentary term.

Energy would be bought wholesale or renewable energy would be generated here in Scotland and sold to customers as close to cost price as possible.

Fiona commented:

 “This announcement of a publicly-owned, not-for-profit energy company to deliver low-cost renewable energy by 2021, will allow families struggling to pay energy bills a better choice, making sure that their supplier will secure the lowest possible price.

“I know this will be welcome news to many in my constituency across West Lothian who are on low incomes and regularly struggle to meet the cost of rising energy bills.”
