Petition to get government to review its approach to the solar feed-in tariff. 24,000 signatures to date!

Posted by Gabby Mallett on 9 October 2015 at 2:45 pm

Are you one of those incensed by the current consultation to review the Feed-in Tariff? Are you unhappy that the government is back tracking on its pledge to be the ‘greenest government ever’? Do you think the cuts are going too far? Are you wondering why they would cut solar subsidies when they are happy to invest in nuclear and support fracking?  Well this may be just what you need.

Why not vent your anger by signing a parliamentary petition.  There is currently a petition to urge DECC to ‘DECC to urgently review the current approach to the solar feed in tariff’.  When the petition receives 10,000 signatures (which it has already) the government will need to provide a response. Once the petition received 100,000 it will need to consider debating it in parliament. The petition currently has close to 24,000 signatures.

Signing is easy; just provide your name and post code and email address. You are then sent an email with a confirmatory link and then you are all signed up.  You will get updates on the petition if anything changes, eg. when the government responds.

if they had  just reduced  tarriff half  pence  every  6  months things  would  have  same  effect, not  only  would the take  up be  a lot more  but  people would  not  loose their  jobs

UK Government to back track is not an option. I fully support 110% this petiton as the public has invested socially, economically and trusted the technology that is changing the environment for better for next generations to come. It will be a shame if the public do not take this opportuinty that has presented itself to express that an ordinary person in the street is more concern about the future of the environment than a government.#BrianKambasha.
