Germany has 200 times more solar power than England.
Why? Because German households and businesses get paid a renewable energy reward for the solar power they generate.
It’s known as the ‘feed-in tariff’ and has helped make Germany a world leader in renewable energy. These are the kinds of solutions we need to tackle climate change. And a Feed-in tarriff would help off-grid communities by building a large home power industry in thye UK and bringing down prices of goods and labour.
They say that if Britain is serious about promoting renewable energy, it needs a ‘feed-in tariff’ or we’ll be left on the bench watching the climate crisis worsen.
The Energy Bill is going through Parliament now – but it needs to be amended to include a renewable energy reward (New Clause 4).
Call on your MP to sign New Clause 4 to the Energy Bill
