EDM adds weight to campaign for equal rates for microgeneration pioneers
Posted by Cathy Debenham on 12 March 2010 at 9:29 am
Sixty seven MPs have signed early day motion 953 calling for equal clean energy cashback (feed-in tariff) for pioneer microgenerators. You can check whether your MP is one of them on the parliament website. If not, why not ask them to sign it. The easiest way to do this is at Write to Them.
The motion: "calls on the Government to recognise the innovation and dynamism of those people who, in breaking new ground in this area, have helped it deliver the Clean Energy Cash-Back scheme; and further calls on the Government to reward those people at the same level as those installing micro-generation capacity for the first time after 1 April 2010."
Campaigning microgenerator Paul Truelove says: "I call on you to talk to your MP and ask for their support and their signature". The petition that he set up on the No 10 website currently has 1,911 signatories. Mr Truelove adds: "Can I urge you to get family, friends, friends of friends and colleagues to sign up to the e-petition. We all need to be as proactive as possible and it can make a real difference."
