Investment angel Deborah Meaden today jumped into the clean energy debate to persuade people to switch from Big Six firms to a renewable energy supplier.
The Dragon’s Den investor struck a more positive tone than her steely appearances on the BBC’s television show in a short video, which can be found on Youtube, giving her support to clean energy.
She said: “It just makes so much sense that we start looking at sensible, alternative renewable energies to replace old-fashioned traditional resources that we know are finite.”
Talking about the investment opportunity of green energy, she added: “People ask me all the time, ‘What would you do as a long-term investment?’ and I am absolutely clear on this. If I was going to be asked to invest in one thing for the future, it would be renewable energy.”
Ms Meaden’s comments back the environmental group Friends of the Earth’s ‘Clean British Energy’ campaign, which recently put ‘CBE’ medals on statues of famous Brits including Queen Victoria and Winston Churchill.
