Energy Local is working to get communities better value from their own renewables. Saving people money and carbon, this project has the potential to positively affect millions across the UK.
The team have entered the Virgin Media Pitch to Rich competition and need your help.
Officially, voting has closed but it will re-open at 10am on Monday 18 May for 48 hours only. This is their final chance to make the short list.
You can find out more about what Energy Local is and why it matters here, but this is a project that could have a huge impact on every citizen nationwide if it is able to grow.
The Pitch to Rich finalists and the People's Choice Award winner will share in over £1,000,000 of prizes which include advertising campaigns, cash investments, mentoring and support from Virgin.

On Wednesday 13 July, artist and activist Salma Zulfiqar FRSA invites you to a free film screening and Q&A of 'The Migration Blanket - Climate Solidarity', showing artworks of women on the frontline of the climate crisis.
The Sustainable Development Goals Network invites RSA Fellows to their next MeetUp on Wednesday 13 November in the Paddington Development Trust facilities, co-organsied by Carolina Karlstrom FRSA.
Building up to a final event the participants have explored the complexity of the issues, understanding different viewpoints, trying ideas out and coming up with solutions. The pilot will culminate with young people coming together later this year to discuss their ideas and findings with local Fellows, Edible Oils Collaboration and https://www.iucn.org/IUCN representatives. The outcome will be a position paper produced by the participants on the sustainable use of palm oil. We will share the paper and a report through the RSA network so you can see what young people are thinking. The project will be evaluated before initiating future conversations on controversial issues defined by policy makers and young people. Please contact [email protected] if you’d like to know more, or if you’re interested in attending the final event on 14th November, or if you have a suggestion for future conversations that would benefit from a youth perspective.
