ECOTRICITY owner Dale Vince has handed another huge donation to the Labour Party. 

The Labour Party accepted another £1.5 million from major donor Dale Vince’s  company Ecotricity, according to the Electoral Commission data for the first quarter of 2024.

The green energy industrialist gave another £1 million to the Opposition party the day after the General Election was called, taking his total donations to £5 million, he told the Financial Times on Wednesday.

He has previously donated to climate group Just Stop Oil. 

UK political parties reported accepting some £22.9 million in donations and public funds in the first three months of the year, up from £20.9 million in the same period in 2023, according to the Electoral Commission.

Louise Edwards, director of regulation and digital transformation, said: “It is common to see donations to political parties grow ahead of an expected, and now scheduled, General Election. They reached £22 million in the opening quarter of the year.”
