The benefits from investing in doing good business through power generation is clear to people in the know or those who take the time to speak to others who have genuine experience and qualified knowledge -
But one thing that really harms the industry and movement is confusing and conflicting messages. In this case we have strong messages from our Govt to get on and do our bit, but then the financial incentive for doing so is (albeit by small %) periodically cut - which against a back drop of rising costs due to EU import levy (a confusion in itself) does not really make any logical sense to those that need confidence to move forwards.
The British Photovoltaic Association (BPVA) is lobbying the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) to freeze the gradual decrease in the two main support mechanisms for solar in the UK.
The leading UK industry body want DECC to keep the feed-in tariff and Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) rates constant for at least 12 months, with six-month reviews thereafter.
BPVA chairman Reza Shaybani aims to raise the matter at the next meeting of DECC's Solar Finance Strategy Group on 10 July.
Why not support this logical action by contacting your local minister or sending Reza a note of support
