Crazy cuts!

The government's proposals to cut the solar PV feed-in tariff by 87% defy all logic.
  • They put over 2,000 London jobs at risk (and 27,000 nationally).
  • They damage a growing industry wshen it is within about three years of needing no more subsidy.
  • They make it harder for the UK to meet its climate change goals. (Not that it would anyway but why undermine such success as we have?)
 Solar and wind are low risk renewable energy technologies that are developing fast. Instead the government seems to prefer nuclear - a technology with high-costs and a near 100% record of delivering late and over budget.
