Dealing with overFITing
Oct 28, 2011
Bishop Hill in Energy: solar

Representatives of the solar industry are apparently to march on Downing Street to protest that their subsidy is being cut.

Members of the solar sector are preparing to stage a protest calling on the prime minister to intervene to block anticipated plans to halve feed-in tariff (FIT) incentives for solar installations, which they fear will "kill off" the fast-expanding industry.

The new Cut Don't Kill campaign, founded by a coalition of 20 major companies from across the solar industry, is planning to hold a march next month calling on David Cameron to halt controversial plans to slash subsidies for small-scale PV installations.

Perhaps readers can suggest some slogans for these poor oppressed souls to shout at Dave and Nick.
